What Is Indoor Positioning Systems (IPS)

Indoor positioning systems (IPS) locate people or objects inside a building using radio waves, magnetic fields, acoustic signals or other sensory information collected by a smartphone device or tablet.

There are many different types of systems available on the market today including WiFI, Radio and Beacons. IndoorAtlas provides a unique cloud platform that runs a disruptive geomagnetic positioning in its core to accurately pinpoint a location inside a building.

How Does Our IPS Work?

Geomagnetic Technology

Our technology uses the oldest navigation infrastructure there is - the Earth’s magnetic field.

By utilizing the built-in magnetic sensor within a smartphone, we are able to detect anomalies in the Earth’s magnetic field to accurately pinpoint and track a person’s location indoors, producing a “blue dot” on a map – just like GPS. Our cloud-based platform is the interface for application developers to create venues, manage data and build location-based services within a mobile application that can include advertising, point-of-interest (search), wayfinding and much more.

Will IndoorAtlas become the third pillar in Indoor Location in 2016?

“Its major advantage over infrastructure is its scalability. Over time, if IndoorAtlas can become commonplace in apps and on devices, supporting crowdsourced mapbuilding, it has huge potential to become a true alternative to Google and Apple. Suddenly, any retailer can partner with them and tap into their location data stream for their venues. Similarly, any company looking to create services around indoor mapped venues, will look to license from IndoorAtlas”

Big in Japan! Geomagnetic Indoor Positioning

“…no other indoor positioning technology can scale so easily, simply because it is a software-only solution, with no hardware infrastructure to deploy and maintain. It is also easy to scale across millions of users”

Janne Haverinen: Mapping The Great Indoors

“Even in an age of GPS-equipped smartphones, it’s tough to pinpoint your exact location inside a building or underground. Janne Haverinen says his IndoorAtlas software, which combines a mobile device’s internal compass with his proprietary indexing of indoor magnetic fields.”
