Indoor positioning in all your buildings!
Combain Indoor is an indoor positioning system (IPS) that enables location-based services inside buildings where GPS signals are weak or unavailable. The system utilizes existing Bluetooth beacons and Wi-Fi access points for positioning, eliminating the need for new hardware or infrastructure.
Combain Indoor is based on crowdsourced indoor training data from our apps, SDKs, and partners. Patented algorithms are used to create a building model after collecting the training data. The indoor positioning is then made available to all devices via the Combain Location API after creating and publishing the building model.
Indoor positioning is available for all Combain Location API users using Combain Indoor. Combain Indoor is not enabled by default for Combain Location API keys as there has to be enough training data for the building to work well.
Combain Indoor features:
- Ready to use: The system is normally ready to use for public buildings since it uses existing infrastructure and crowdsourcing, and manual system setup or deployment of new routers or beacons like traditional indoor positioning systems is not required.
- Good accuracy: The actual accuracy of Combain Indoor depends on building and beacon density, but typically, a median error of 5-20m is obtained for public buildings. The accuracy can be improved by at least 2x through extra crowdsourcing by using the Combain SDK Demo App. If you need a better accuracy than 10m, check out the Combain Enterprise Indoor solution.
- Combain SDK Demo App and Android SDK are available for free for your own crowdsourcing of indoor training data that enhance Combain Indoor performance.
