Indoor GPS based on Bluetooth Low Energy
Wayfinding and indoor navigation is based on precise indoor positioning with the help of BLE Sensor-Infrastructures. It feels like Indoor GPS. With our software our international customers have therefore realized indoor navigation on cruise ships, in office buildings, in airports, in stadiums and multifunctional arenas as well as in large shopping centers. The route to the desired point is displayed on a map on the user’s mobile phone or tablet or the route is announced by the output device.
Favendo already provided wayfinding and indoor navigation for:
- Cruise Ships
- Train Station
- Soccer Stadiums
- Multi-functional Arenas
- Office Buildings
- Shopping Malls
Deployment and SDK
We deliver our software as SDK for integration into your existing native or hybrid app or already integrated into a white label app, which can be configured according to your wishes. Of course we provide planning and deployment of the Beacon infrastructure for you.

Numerous technologies compete for supremacy
While the current satellite navigation systems for outdoor use usually consist of a GPS receiver combined with electronically stored or online available maps, a large number of technologies and systems in different combinations currently compete for supremacy in the field of wayfinding.
Beacons are ideal
Beacons are signal transmitters that send signals at short intervals and use the Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) radio standard to transmit these signals. Their range is between 30 and 100 meters and because of that ideal for functioning wayfinding. All our products and solutions therefore comply with the strictest German data protection and security guidelines and the international SITA standard.
Due to the specific disadvantages of competing technologies and systems, it can be assumed that the Beacon technology will continue to establish itself as the standard for indoor navigation, as it is capable of providing a user experience similar to an indoor GPS. In fact, indoor BLE technology can offer even more than GPS. For example, indoor navigation via BLE makes it possible to identify individual floors, which should be a fundamental part of indoor navigation. This video shows indoor navigation with floor change and automatic elevator call. The end user needs a smart device with the corresponding application and activated Bluetooth within a beacon infrastructure.
In Germany, three quarters of people over the age of 14 (76 percent) already use a smartphone. This means that the the majority of potential users already have one of the components required for indoor navigation and even use it very frequently.
