Who Needs Indoor Navigation in Complex Facilities?

Introduction

Indoor navigation systems by VIEWAR provide real-time information about the facility’s layout, locations, and specific areas, and guide people through the facility using digital overlays and other augmented reality features. This makes it easy for people to orient themselves and find their way to their desired destination, even in unfamiliar or constantly changing environments. But who are these people who need such systems? After all, if you are familiar with the building, wouldn’t you be able to navigate around it yourself?

Many groups and individuals are using AR indoor navigation!

Navigating through complex industrial facilities can present significant challenges for a variety of groups of individuals. These facilities can be large and maze-like, with multiple levels, numerous rooms and corridors, and a variety of obstacles and equipment. But people need to find their way quickly and efficiently in order to be on time. 

If they are not familiar with the layout of the facility, this can be increasingly challenging!

Each group or individual may have unique requirements for indoor navigation, such as specific accessibility needs, job-specific tasks, or time constraints. By understanding these needs, organizations can design and implement indoor navigation systems that are tailored to meet their needs.

  1. Employees: Not finding the right way on time might lead to wasted time and frustration. As they might probably need to navigate through the facility to perform their duties, such as attending meetings, accessing equipment, or completing tasks, it can negatively impact productivity and job satisfaction.
  2. Maintenance and cleaning personnel: These teams may need to move around the facility for cleaning specific areas or performing maintenance on equipment. If maintenance and cleaning personnel are not able to navigate the facility effectively, it can lead to missed or delayed maintenance, which can cause equipment failures and potentially put the safety of employees at risk.
  3. Delivery drivers and couriers: Goods and materials need to be delivered to the right location in a facility in a timely manner. In order to drop off or pick up packages or materials, indoor navigation tools must be provided at all times. Without proper navigation assistance, it can take them longer to locate specific areas, loading docks or receiving areas, and this can delay the delivery and unloading of goods and materials.
  4. Inspectors and auditors: As facilities may be subject to various regulations and safety standards, regular inspections and audits are a necessary part of operations. In order to perform inspections and audits faster and to reduce stress of auditors and everyone else involved, indoor navigation helps to ensure proper guidance.
  5. Educational groups: As part of an educational or learning experience, such groups are most probably unfamiliar with the layout of the facility and without proper navigation assistance, it can take them longer to locate specific areas. Without effective guidance, it also becomes harder to provide the necessary information or explanations.
  6. Customers and clients: These individuals may visit complex facilities for a variety of reasons. They may visit a facility to conduct business, such as to meet with employees, attend training or product demonstrations, or to make purchases or orders. They also might want to learn more about the products or services that the facility provides, or to see the production process firsthand in behind-the-scenes tours. Poor navigation can lead to confusion and inconvenience and can negatively impact their overall experience and the perception of the facility or organization.
  7. Emergency responders: In order to ensure safety in emergency situations and to help firefighters, paramedics, and police officers to find their way around the building, augmented reality indoor navigation provides the necessary guidance. Unclear instructions can negatively impact their ability to respond effectively and may put lives at risk!
