A leading UK-based indoor mapping service provider wanted to simplify and speed-up asset tracking & indoor navigation for their healthcare client. They were looking for a reliable tech partner to integrate IoT capabilities with their indoor mapping and navigation application.
We developed a native mobile app to enable seamless navigation for visitors of the facility and a web application with IoT capabilities for the medical staff to track assets.
Allows patients & visitors to quickly navigate across the network of services, patient rooms, pharmacy & other medical amenities.
IoT sensors enable medical staff to locate & mobilize wheelchairs, stretchers, infusion pumps, ventilators, pacemakers.
Enforce role-based access for the staff depending on hierarchy & confidentiality.
Guides users to their desired destination with easy-to-follow voice directions while accurately displaying the position & distance of the equipment or location.
We took an iterative approach to implement the Real-time Location System (RTLS) with IoT capabilities. In the first phase, we developed a native mobile app for both Android & iOS platforms. In the second phase, a web application with IoT capabilities to manage the back-end operations to monitor & communicate for equipment inventory & employee tracking.
We installed BLE tags to track medical equipment via the web application. They triangulate the signal for device location in real-time. This enabled the nursing staff to stay on top of high-value equipment, usage history & other data for optimized use of resources.
Our team converted the existing floor plan which was in the XML-based vector image format into interactive 2D maps. It allows complete digitalization of the physical space while providing a foundation layer for Asset Tracking and Wayfinding.
We utilized RUST to collect and interpret data from different sources to create accurate indoor maps. To determine optimal routes, we used the shortest path algorithm based on heuristic methods. It ensures that the indoor maps are always up-to-date and match the actual terrain. This was with voice-based search to provide recommendations & directions.
We enabled seamless integration with GPS maps & medical solutions that use indoor floor plans. Our team developed geofence objects & implemented them with logic-flow-driven alerts (enter and exit a geo zone). Further by aligning the LAT/LONG coordinates, we provide real-world placement of medical inventory.
