HERE Indoor Positioning

Fast and accurate positioning indoors

Introduction

Global positioning for a variety of uses

Still want to know where you are when you go inside? Locating a device’s position should not stop when you enter a building, nor become any less accurate. 

HERE Indoor Positioning provides fast, accurate global positioning indoors for a variety of enterprise, governmental and consumer use cases.

TECHNICAL INFORMATION

Powerful, immersive, versatile

Available through the HERE Mobile SDK for iOS and Android, HERE Indoor Positioning comes complete with enablement tools such as the HERE Indoor Radio Mapper. The HERE Indoor Radio Mapper (available on Google Play) enables the location of devices that are indoors – from offices to airports, to malls, and more. The technology can even determine which floor the device is on, creating a full 3D experience.

HERE Indoor Positioning integrates into other Mobile SDK services, including HERE Venue Maps, to power a variety of engaging indoor applications for enterprises, governments and consumers. Indoor location can be determined using WiFi or Bluetooth. HERE Venue Maps can deliver a seamless indoor-outdoor-indoor navigation experience, from start to finish.

How HERE Indoor Positioning works:

Uploading venue data

A venue’s radio map is uploaded to the cloud and becomes available on all mobile devices.

Available online and offline

Once downloaded, the radio map can be used offline to support those cases when an Internet connection is not available, but provides the same level of detail for interior mapping.

Accurate indoor location information

Applications can now be created that utilize indoor positioning. IPS technology pinpoints a user’s location at all times inside a building, regardless of the floor they are on.
