Navigation

Build a mobile app that provides wayfinding guidance.

A mobile app that provides users with navigation instructions enables wayfinding in unfamiliar places. Building such an app requires accurate positioning throughout the venue of interest.
How it can be used

Sample applications

  • Visitors at a large hospital use a mobile app to learn their current location and be assisted with step-by-step guidance to reach their destinations
  • Drivers leaving their car at a large parking structure may use a mobile app to "remember" their current location and be guided back to their cars at their return
  • Trade show attendees can use the branded app provided by the show to find the exhibits of their interest and be guided to visit them
  • Shopping mall visitors use venue-provided mobile apps to locate the stores of their interest and be guided to reach them
  • Shoppers at a large department store use the store-provided mobile app to locate items of their interest and be assisted to find them
