    Indoor navigation

    Enhance the intelligence of illuminated spaces with an "indoor GPS"

    Hyper-accurate indoor positioning uses LED light to create an “indoor GPS” that enables location-based services. These include wayfinding in offices and aisle-side promotions and shopper assistance requests in retail environments. Combat overcrowding and better understand people movement and behavior to optimize floorplans based on the needs and habits of the people who use your illuminated spaces. Monitor in-store footfall traffic and design customer-first layouts that make life easier for shoppers and increase profits. Support social distancing and related measures with safe workspace designs informed by real-time and historical data.

    Improve workplace efficiency

    Help employees find the best available workspace even before they leave home. Using real-time occupancy data, a smartphone app displays all available workspaces in a floorplan format, reducing the amount of time spent looking for a resource, free desk, or meeting room, and supporting social distancing.

    Put shoppers first

    Interact-enabled retail apps let shoppers locate products or services in store and navigate to them directly. Shoppers can upload a shopping list before their visit, get guidance while on the premises, and enjoy the most efficient route through your store. You can personalize the customer experience by sending shoppers relevant promotions while in store, then analyze the effectiveness of your in-store marketing campaigns. Shoppers can ask store personnel to come to them. rather than having to seek them out.

    How Interact Indoor navigation works

    VLC (visible light communication) enables data communications using the invisible flickering of LED lighting. This data can be detected by the camera on a smartphone, which can then be located on a map of the space. VLC is hyper-accurate, determining the location of a customer’s mobile device within 30cm (about 1 foot). With a mobile app developed using the Interact Indoor navigation software development kits (SDKs), users can enjoy location-aware wayfinding, information, in-aisle promotions, and other location-enabled services.
