Accurate indoor location is very difficult to get right. We make it work.
Pointr's indoor positioning system technology does not rely on the usage of the phone's compass, which in many indoor environments fails to deliver useful orientation. It also does not rely on fingerprinting or geomagnetic techniques, which are less accurate and cumbersome to install and maintain.
Instead, Pointr’s Deep Location® platform utilizes sensor fusion techniques and machine-learning algorithms to provide incredible accuracy both in terms of blue dot location and orientation.
Pointr’s technology provides accurate indoor positioning even in large and complex buildings and across multiple levels.
Multi-floor positioning is hard to achieve. That's why we use sensor fusion to ensure great accuracy, even in buildings with high ceilings and mezzanines. Our technology automatically detects which floor the user is on within a maximum of 3 seconds and updates the user interface accordingly.
Pointr's multi-floor technology is already deployed in some of the world's largest and most complex buildings such as international airports, events venues and shopping malls.
Even with a super accurate indoor positioning system, translating that to indoor navigation is notoriously difficult. Indoor navigation must take into account not only positioning and orientation, but mapped location and obstacles such as moving from floor to floor of a building or from inside to outside and vice versa.
Pointr's technology automatically chooses whether to use Deep Location® or GPS thanks to its indoor-outdoor positioning feature. There's no need to install any hardware outdoors - that makes our technology easy to integrate in smart cities with multiple venues.
No one has come close to scaling indoor location. That's where we come in.
At Pointr, we've built Deep Location®, a highly scalable indoor location platform.
That's how, for the first time, we make indoor location available at scale.
Enable location-based services such as indoor positioning, indoor navigation, contextual engagement and much more.
How it works
The position is determined through interaction between the user’s smartphone and the sensors placed at intervals throughout the venue.
With the Pointr SDKs you can build web or mobile apps that take full advantage of our powerful Deep Location® platform. The Pointr SDKs are designed for modular integration from ground up and they are easy to incorporate into your own apps. We can also provide our Prototype App for quick testing and validation.
Pointr Mobile SDK is a native library available on both iOS and Android, designed to be integrated seamlessly into mobile apps to enable Indoor Positioning, Indoor Navigation, Digital Mapping and Augmenting Reality.
Digital Mapping and Indoor Navigation can also be experienced on desktop and mobile browsers or on kiosk hardware, including tailored functionalities such as multi-language and automatic software updates.
Pointr Cloud is a market leading solution that enables you to configure and manage your hardware and manage your digital maps and on-map content at the touch of a button. Most capabilities are also available as a RESTful API.
At Pointr, we make smart use of Bluetooth® Beacons. Beacons are small radio transmitters that can be understood by nearby smartphones and tablets. They come in multiple shapes and sizes. They can be standalone battery or USB powered devices or can be integrated into WiFi access points or lighting infrastructure. Pointr does not manufacture beacons and is a hardware-agnostic company.
Increasingly, hardware manufacturers are bundling beacon-like technology within other pieces of common hardware. Two such examples are WiFi access points and smart lighting.
Pointr can provide accurate indoor location and wayfinding to venues with existing WiFi access points and smart lighting from many brands. These pieces of smart hardware function the same as beacons, meaning that as people move around the building, their device receives signals, allowing Pointr's engine to calculate their location.
Build your solution from concept to scale with Pointr experts. Our team of experienced engineers will guide you through the deployment process.
During this phase we will work with you to test your solution with a small group of users. We will provide you with all the necessary hardware and software tools, including a standalone app if necessary.
We will develop a deployment plan & tools for the full roll-out:
