QR navigation

QR navigation is a budget solution that allows you to implement a digital navigation system indoors without deploying additional infrastructure. Navigation by QR codes is a simple way to solve indoor navigation, which makes it possible to determine your position by QR codes without an installed mobile application and plot a route in a web browser.

Basically, QR navigation is QR tags that are scanned by the device's camera and an interactive map of the room opens, indicating the exact location of the user on it.

The main advantages of using QR navigation in the premises
Quick orientation Quick positioning in the room, search for points of interest and the shortest route to them, information about the desired object in the mobile phone.
Available to everyone QR codes can be placed on any surfaces and media: walls, floors, elevators, information stands and other objects in the building.
Just use Without a mobile app. There is no need to install the app, the map opens in the user's device browser.
Cheap to implement The introduction of QR navigation is cheaper than alternative solutions for indoor navigation, as it does not require additional equipment.
The main advantages of QR navigation systems lie in the availability and ease of implementation, as well as a wide range of use.

Indoor navigation by QR codes can be used in shopping malls, exhibition complexes, higher educational institutions, medical institutions: polyclinics and hospitals, stadiums and sports complexes, museums, hotels and hotels, business centers and office premises, warehouses and factories, as well as in the parking lots of shopping complexes.

The main functionality of QR navigation is based on recognizing QR codes and building a route from the place where the QR code is read, or a selected point on the map, to the desired object or room.

Our indoor navigation using QR codes consists of a web widget with a map and a web navigation control panel, in which the administrator creates an interactive map, routes, adds the necessary premises, descriptions and images to us.

Use cases:

You need to quickly determine your position and orient yourself: scan the QR code and see your location on the map of buildings and objects (premises) in the vicinity.

You need to find out the route: scan the QR code and in the widget that opens, enter the name of the room you are looking for through the search window, click build a route and the shortest path in front of your eyes.

It is necessary to find the way to the car in the parking lot: scan the nearest QR code, enter the number of your parking meta in the search and it is displayed on the map in the widget that opens. One more click and the route to the parking lot is built.

Demonstration of advertising. The administrator sets up an advertising company in the control panel and loads banners that will be shown to users when scanning QR codes. On top of the widget with the map, the user will see a banner with advertising information, which he can close.

How navigation with QR codes works

• The user scans the QR code located in front of him with the camera of his mobile device.

• The QR code opens an interactive map of the object in the browser and displays the user’s location on it.

• The user can select an object (room) of interest to him on the map or find it through a search, and build a route to it, which will be displayed on the map in the browser. You can also view information about the object.

• Then the user moves along the route to the object of interest (room). Unfortunately, QR navigation does not track the user’s location in real time when driving.

There are more and more large buildings and structures that are becoming increasingly difficult to navigate, and it takes longer to find the right store or car in the parking lot than to make a purchase.
The Indors Navigation platform and its QR-navigation module in buildings help to speed up the process of orientation and search for the right room.

It often happens that in order to hold a meeting, it is necessary to explain to all visitors how to find a meeting room or go to meet them in the entrance area of the office or business center. And since office complexes are getting bigger and bigger every year, they include several buildings in which an independent search to find the right room can take a very long time, it is necessary to use modern navigation systems in the premises, for example, based on the Indoor Navigation Platform, which also allows QR navigation in the premises.

QR-navigation in the room will help you navigate transport objects, for example, at a train station or at the airport. You can quickly determine how to get to the ticket office or to the check-in desk, find the right apron or boarding gate (gate), using the geographic information system Indors Navigation, which will help reduce the search time through the use of modern geolocation systems, including navigation by QR codes.
