London’s Gatwick Airport now has 2,000 beacons for in-house navigation
Intricate in-house environments for instance, air-ports and department shops could be a pain to find your way around. Although Google is seeking handsets with 3D detectors as one probable fix for places GPS won’t accurately reach, another approach is to kit out an interior with tons of Bluetooth beacons – giving cell phone users located-locked pings to fix onto to fnd out where they are.
The UK’s 2nd busiest air-port, Gatwick airport, has selected the 2nd way to power an indoor navigation system it’s launching as a part of a wider, multi-year transformation program.
It’s presently finished kitting out its two terminals with close to 2 Thousand battery-powered beacons to make sure that digital map users will get a more precise blue dot as they walk around. The beacon system will also be employed to power an augmented reality wayfinding tool – making sure that mobile users will have the ability to be guided to a particular locations within the terminals using on-screen arrows. The beacon system is planned as supporting positioning with +/-3m precision.
Gatwick is planning to integrate indoor positioning into some of its mobile apps, and says it’s in discussions with airlines to take advantage of it for their own mobile apps and services – giving demonstration of them having the ability to send push notifications to inform travellers if they’re running late, or even consider if they should wait or offload luggage so an aircraft can take off on time.
Retail stores and other third parties will also be able to utilize the system for proximity detection of potential buyers and delivery marketing and advertising messages – at a minimum to those who’ve opted in to receive them.
Gatwick says it will not be acquiring any private data via the beacons but says “generic information on ‘people densities’ in different beacon zones” will be used to help to improve airport operations – just like queue measurement, streamlining passenger flows and lessening obstruction.
The airport has worked with UK startup Pointr on the system. And also developing software and managing the system on an ongoing basis, Pointr offers an SDK with support for 3D AR wayfinding for third parties to tap into the functionality.
