Better orientation on campus with augmented reality indoor navigation

The challenges on campus

New challenges await students as they begin their studies in the first semester. These include finding their way within a complex university building. How do they find their room where their lecture is being held? Is there barrier-free access? 

Due to the complexity of university departments, wayfinding can be extremely difficult: Students additionally need to be quick when getting from one classroom to another. Especially if they are pressed for time. 

But onboarding new faculty members can be a challenge too. What’s the fastest way to get from this room to another? Where can faculty members find the teaching materials they need?

AR Indoor Navigation helps to find rooms easier

Efficient indoor navigation is becoming increasingly important. First-year students in particular have a tough furrow to plow. With modern campus navigation software, wayfinding can be provided directly to users’ mobile devices in a user-friendly way.  Indoor navigation can be an accurate, effective, and inexpensive tool that provides users with a more efficient and intuitive way to navigate faculty. 

Modern Indoor Navigation with AR

Provide students with guided navigation and details about the exact location they are in. Introducing indoor navigation to your university can not only improve life on campus for students, but also improve work for your staff overall. Managing a university is a huge effort that can be made easier with augmented reality indoor navigation, workflows, checklists, and other features.

With INDOAR, we offer an all-in-one application that includes all the features needed to address ongoing challenges and help people find their way around their location. An efficient navigation software that guides students, faculty and visitors through the faculty. In addition, VR functionality provides additional capabilities. First-year students can familiarize themselves with the faculty before they arrive. With the help of AR indoor navigation, AR workflows, and AR checklists – all in one app – you can also make facility maintenance easier for university staff! 

The benefits AR indoor navigation

Indoor navigation with INDOAR offers benefits to a wide range of industries. While getting to your destination efficiently is already a great benefit, indoor navigation has many more advantages. For example, you can specify the route that a user should definitely take or avoid. Perhaps certain passages are closed to the general public and accessible only to employees. In this way, the user can be steered in a certain direction depending on a person’s permissions. Routes can either be calculated automatically or set manually to ensure that people only go where you want them to. 

In addition, tours can be predefined. What does this mean? By offering digital tours, you can guide visitors through predefined routes or paths within your site, allowing them to use their own mobile device. Navigate your visitors based on shopping lists, exhibition topics, or simply help them get comfortable with your office building. The application allows the creation of customized tours either by the administrator or by the user himself.

Indoor navigation facilitates wayfinding at universities and colleges!

Indoor positioning can be enhanced with additional features such as workflows, remote assistance, digital content (advertising, information, IOT data, etc.) and everything else that the VIEWAR suite includes. VIEWAR offers a combined solution of AR and VR (browser-based), which is more than what typical competitors offer in their solutions. 

Close the gap between the physical and digital worlds by extending interactive content based on the visitor’s physical location. View and interact with 3D objects and other types of content such as videos, text, and audio. Inspire your visitors with 3D representations of extraordinary creatures or just let them watch a video or read a text. 

Conclusion

Convenient indoor navigation is already essential for modern airports, shopping malls, factories, large office buildings, museums, cruise ships and hospitals: transform your location into an extraordinary experience with the help of augmented reality so that your visitors not only see where they need to go, but also have an interesting experience on the way there!
