UK’s Gatwick Airport now has 2,000 beacons for indoor navigation

Complex indoor environments for example, air-ports and shopping malls is often a bad dream to find your way around. Although Google is hunting smartphones with 3D detectors as one prospective fix for places GPS won’t precisely reach, another approach is to kit out an interior with tons of Bluetooth beacons – giving smartphone users located-locked pings to fix onto to know exactly where they’re.

The UK’s 2nd busiest air-port, Gatwick airport, has decided on the 2nd approach to power an indoor navigation system it’s launching as part of a wider, multi-year transformation program.

It’s presently finished kitting out its two terminals with around 2,000 battery-powered beacons guaranteeing that digital map users will get a more exact blue dot as they move around. The beacon system will likewise be employed to power an augmented reality wayfinding tool – to make sure that mobile users can be guided to precise locations within the terminals through on-screen arrows. The beacon system is planned as supporting positioning with +/-3m precision.

Gatwick is intending to integrate indoor positioning into some of its apps, and says it’s in discussions with airlines to utilize it for their own apps and services – giving demonstration of them having the capability to send push notifications to remind travelers if they’re running late, or even settle on if they should wait or offload luggage so an airplane can take off promptly.

Shops and other third parties will likewise be able to utilize the system for proximity detection of potential shoppers and delivery advertising messages – at a minimum to those who’ve opted in to receive them.

Gatwick says it certainly won’t be gathering any personal data through the beacons but says “generic information on ‘people densities’ in different beacon zones” will be used to help improve airport operations – including queue measurement, streamlining passenger flows and minimizing blockage.

The airport has worked with UK start-up Pointr on the system. Along with developing software and managing the system on an ongoing basis, Pointr provides an SDK with support for 3D AR wayfinding to enable third parties to access the functionality.
