This app offers detai-rich indoor maps, turn-by-turn indoor navigation, parking help and more. This provides indoor positioning of visitors within one or two meters. The navigation platform assists users with visual landmarks and off-route notifications. Another featurs in the navigation includes ‘The car saver’ function, which saves the visitor’s parking locations and provides detailed directions back to their spot.
Users can access the app interface either from the indoor digital kiosks, their desktop computer or a mobile device. They can also input vital information, such as vistor details, before entering the hospital.
The indoor GPS system runs on Medinav, a low-energy Bluetooth platform developed by Connexient.
