The next generation navigation system in collaboration with Sunnaas hospital.
“It solves some great challenges for our hospital.”
Head of the Department of Innovation and e-Health
why is our system unique?
NO GPS needed
Indoor and outdoor
Unlimited point of interests
Technology is already in our phones
Hospitals are very complex and difficult to navigate. 40% of patients and visitors depend on hospital staff to find their way and this increase costs and worsen operational efficiency.
A cost-estimate by Zimring, which is often cited, is that problems with navigation in medium-sized hospitals in Norway can cost the institution 2 million NOK annually.
Conventional GPS-technology is not accurate enough (~few meters) and works only outdoors.
Poor navigation causes unnecessary stress and anxiety for patients and visitors.
SLAM (Simultaneous Localization And Mapping) technology allows phones and tablets to instantly track the world around them and overlay it with digital elements.
Artificial Intelligence provides our system the ability to automatically learn and improve from experience without being explicitly programmed.
A framework purpose-built for AR development that allows us to build rich experiences once, then deploy across multiple mobile and wearable AR devices. AR Foundation includes core features from ARKit (IOS) and ARCore (Android).
