Indoor Localization Service based on Beacons: A System to Save Your Life!

Navigation systems help users find their way around the world. But what if we wanted to reach the exact platform of our departing train and it’s a matter of minutes? Or what if in the earthquake/fire event we wanted the shortest path to the escape route? The skill is to move from a problem to an extremely innovative solution. Indoor localization allows users to access unknown environments. The main challenges of the proposed system are the safety, the access control, and the activity monitoring. In fact, knowing instantly the exact position of the people to be assisted is extremely important in an indoor environment.
