System for indoors orientation and guidance

The project

The project System for indoors orientation and guidance (GuideMe) is a platform that provides guidance and security for people with special characteristics when moving outside their homes. This solution is built upon a discrete mobile device, which is able to detect movement in interior spaces with an accuracy of 10 cm, using UWB (Ultra Wide Band) technology. The device can also pinpoint its direction, accept voice commands and provide vocal instructions. It is able to detect falls and provide Updates. Its function is based on the mobile device’s cooperation with an app that runs on the user’s cellphone and a server. 

Project purpose

GuideMe project facilitates people with special characteristics to move around in internal spaces with increased orientation demands. GuideMe project is a platform that provides guidance and security for these people when moving outside their homes. This solution is built upon a discrete mobile device, which is able to detect movement in interior spaces with an accuracy of 10 cm, using UWB technology. The device can also pinpoint its direction, accept voice commands and provide vocal instructions. It is able to detect falls and provide Updates.

Project results

After its completion the system is expected to comprise of these parts: :

  • Equipment, Εξοπλισμό, permanently installed in internal spaces.
  • A Cloud Server, that synchronizes all parts, stores information of the facilities and users and is responsible for the logistic part of the project.
  • Mobile devices.
  • A software that runs on smartphones .
