4 ways to 3D map your building for accurate indoor positioning
1. WiFis and BLE beacons data upload
Upload a CSV-file with the exact location, including floor, of your WiFis and Bluetooth beacons into our database. After a few minutes, our CPS API automatically switches to use your Indoor WiFi and Bluetooth locations when you are in the building.
Go to ‘Tools’ section at bottom of page -> Click on ‘Indoor’
Create a CSV-file with all your WiFis and BLE beacons. See example how the file should be formatted.
Go to ‘Upload CSV’ and upload your file.
Go to map and verify your building. You can drag and drop to justify any WiFis or beacons that are misplaced.
Ready! CPS API will in a few minutes use your data for better indoor location.
If still too bad accuracy, you can add more WiFis or BLE beacons to the building and insert them as above.
2. WiFis and BLE beacons input with App
Upload your WiFis and Bluetooth beacons with the exact location, by using our CPS Demo App into our database. After a few minutes, our CPS API automatically switches to use your Indoor WiFi and Bluetooth locations when you are in the building.
When you are close to the transmitter a submit page will automatically appear
Enter building, floor, room, comment and then choose Select On Map
Zoom in as much as you can (better accuracy) and set the correct location of the transmitter
Submit the data
Go to next beacon and repeat
Tip 1: Portal: You can verify and manage (move wifis etc) your new CPS Indoor model for your building on the portal if you log in and choose Indoor
Tip 2: App: If you do not get the submit page or want to modify an entry in the App, you can also go to Details and then click on a WiFi or BT beacon from the list to get to the submit page
3. Indoor SLAM with App
SLAM = Simulataneous Location And Mapping with our Android app. You can automatically create a much better indoor location automatically for a specific building by just walking around the building.
We gather all the SLAM data from the app, apply our indoor algorithms and then the result is automatically uploaded to our database for use in CPS API. Thus our CPS API automatically switches to your Indoor SLAM models when you are in the building.
Download our Android App: Combain CPS, preferably on a newer Android mobile with pressure sensor.
Click ‘INDOOR SLAM’ button.
Set correct building name and floor number for the entrance.
Start by walking outdoors one time around the building with GPS fix all the time (GPS box green).
Then toggle the Indoor switch to true and walk into the building. Walk around the floor, the longer, the more accurate positioning.
Insert your own reference points where you want better accuracy or want room level accuracy.
Click ‘Floor’ button when you change floor and insert new floor number or when you walk outdoors.
Click ‘STOP’ when you are done. Data is uploaded and calculations starts on our servers. After a few minutes it will be available on our CPS API for testing.
You can verify your new CPS Indoor model for your building in the app with Show Map. If there are bad areas, just start INDOOR SLAM again and walk around some more.
Tip: For good results, try to get as many GPS fixes as possible (be close to windows, walk out and in again on all entrances, etc).
4. Indoor SLAM with SDK
Soon there will be an SDK for app developers to use that automatically gives an accurate 3D location in any building. Each time it has been used in a building, the more accurate the location will be.
Mobile positioning made easy
Use our service to easily locate connected devices indoor and outdoor. Our global database of cell-id and wifi data provides the latitude and longitude of your device.
