Outline of the Proof of Concept (PoC)

We demonstrated three Mapsted services for the future implementation of indoor location solution services. We are currently aiming to verify the technical effects of our indoor positioning solutions at facilities operated by our partner companies, improve convenience and productivity, and utilize the results of the PoC for planning and marketing.

Main Items for Verification

From the preparation stage to the PoC, we sequentially figured out the issues. Moreover, we have comprehensively evaluated the system’s performance and the practicality of its implementation.

  • Positioning accuracy
  • UI / UX
  • Practicality

PoC process

  1. Selection of assumed use cases
  2. Selection of facilities to be used for PoC
  3. Digitization of target facility maps
  4. Calibration* implementation
  5. Demonstration using a demo app and dashboard
  6. Discussion of items such as issues for implementation with participating partner companies for multi-faceted decisions

*Calibration: Collecting indoor data about the target facility in advance using a dedicated Mapsted app to enable proper indoor positioning.


Coming soon.
