New capability allows users to add latitude longitude tags to assets, in GPS denied indoor environments
Indoor Reality’s 3D mobile mapping solution can now automatically assign a latitude longitude tag to an indoor asset, a capability that traditionally has been available only to outdoor assets where GPS is readily available.
“The new feature takes asset tagging one step further by providing a unified location identifier for safety, security, energy, and IoT assets, not only inside one building, but also across multiple buildings across the globe,” said founder and CEO, Dr. Avideh Zakhor. “This in turn can be used by asset and facilities management solutions, and building automation systems to visualize, control, and manage assets seamlessly across multiple buildings.
“The location meta data is also critical for configuring building automation control and integrating sensor networks. It allows analytics applications to exploit spatial relationship between sensors and devices inside a building, to provide more comfort to the occupants, and to improve building energy efficiency. Furthermore, the geo-tagging information can be integrated with popular GIS software, unleashing the power of GIS software to building interiors.”
This feature will become available for current users of Indoor Reality products as of Q2 2019.
