Best apps for navigating indoors: Satnav without satellites

It’s a first-world problem, but a problem nevertheless: How do you navigate an indoor space when GPS does not work? While it may not yet be ideal, as with everything these days, there’s an app for that – or rather several apps.

We all use satnavs, but they don’t work indoors. PC Advisor investigates some apps and new technology that could help us find our way in airports, shopping malls and any large buildings.

Amongst others, companies like Virtusa are working on solutions that leverage similar technologies to that of Apple, namely Bluetooth Smart. Mubaloo is working with Cisco on combining Wi-Fi with BLE beacons to create indoor navigation.

These applications can have a great influence in the enterprise world. Think of the possibilities for hospital patients needing to find their way to a specialist appointment, or visitors to the hospital accessing an app to help them locate their loved one. Universities are also looking at options so that students and guests can find classes and offices quickly and easily.
