Navsop Indoor Positioning App Bulb Studios - Rapier Group

  • Bulb Studios - Rapier Group

Working alongside our partners at RapierGroup and BAE systems, we helped develop and install an interactive mobile demonstration at Farnborough Air Show. NAVSOP (navigation via signals of opportunity) is a cutting edge global navigation system which does not require GPS, and instead uses radio, TV, mobile phone and wi-fi signals, to position anything – a person, object, vehicle etc. anywhere on the globe. Our technical team developed a seamless solution across platforms using wi-fi positioning to track a number of people via Android devices around the exhibition hall. Each device calculates its own position and sends this location data in realtime to our database; this data is then extracted by our web application and displayed using a live visualisation on iPads and a large screen display in the hall.
