Sail Indoor Positioning
Sail is Crowd Connected’s IPS solution. You can sign up, configure, and download an app from the app store to evaluate the technology for free in a day.
The subscription based pricing model means no upfront payment, and no long-term commitment.
Why is Indoor Location important?
Mobile apps for physical businesses need to be location aware
Mobile maps need to deliver a blue dot, in outdoor and indoor environments. Better indoor navigation on mobile devices means customers stay longer, and spend more money.
Geo-fencing and location-based services need to work perfectly indoors too, out of reach of global positioning systems.
Indoor location, indoor tracking and indoor mapping bring the power of geospatial inside.
About IPS Technologies
WiFi and infrastructure-free solutions don’t deliver.
An Indoor Positioning System (IPS) needs transmitters or sensors installed in a building.
You can use WiFi, but the results won’t be amazing. Sensor fusion isn’t possible to combine the WiFi signals with movement sensors, which is essential for accuracy.
You can use expensive technologies like UWB or Angle of Arrival.
But the best balance of price and performance is provided by Bluetooth beacons, which can be installed quickly and at low cost.
Sail works with any iBeacon or Eddystone protocol beacon, from any manufacturer.
The makes it simple and cheap to install the required beacons.
It also means that existing beacon installations can be leveraged to power Sail Indoor Positioning.
Although Sail works with any Bluetooth beacons, all beacons are not equal. We have extensively tested beacons from a small number of manufacturers, and can certify the best possible indoor positioning performance.
