Positioning

Outdoor positioning is often provided using GPS receivers, and sometimes coupled with Bluetooth locator beacons.

Two satellite networks are now available for most recent smartphones: the American GPS network and the Galileo network, providing considerable accuracy in most locations. In dense urban areas, or in areas with radio interference from radio emittors, this accuracy can be distorted.

Indoor positioning is more difficult to implement and requires more recent technology, challenged by the leading smartphone manufacturers, Google and Apple.

A few years earlier, 2 techniques seemed to be setting the stage for the future of indoor positioning: close localisation using Beacons (adapted to Native Apps) and a triangulation locating procedure using WiFi networks (adapted to Web Apps). These two techniques were proven to be somewhat unreliable and the triangulation locating procedure using WiFi is no longer authorised by Google and Apple.

In 2016, radio-based location technology was introduced. This is now the only reliable technique for precise indoor positioning.
This involves placing beacons according to an optimal layout plan produced by our design office (one beacon for every 64 m² approximately).
A programme analyses the signal from each beacon by cross-referencing the whole area. The information collected is integrated into a special programme, which is then integrated into the Wezit programmes.


During the tour, the position is determined by comparing the signals to the reference map.
This system works with downloaded applications, but not with Progressive Web Apps for the moment, because Bluetooth is still not available for webpages on mobiles.

Navigation

Where positioning is available, visitors can be provided a navigation feature.

Wezit has a specific programme that can manage propositions for moving around inside a building.
These visits may be established based on lifts to use, the choice of different access possibilities, floor management, etc.

Nausicaa
Boulogne sur Mer – France

In 2018, Nausicaa carried out extension works and became the biggest aquarium in Europe, a few kilometres away from Belgium. The user experience has also been redesigned, using a transmedia approach.

Musée des Beaux Arts de Dijon
Dijon – France

The Museum of Fine Arts in Dijon has just completed renovation work that took over ten years, to modernise the place and to be able to welcome around 1,500 artworks, exhibited in 50 galleries, spread over 4,200 m².
