WiFind is a real time indoor location/tracking system for people and goods

It takes advantage of the already installed Wi-Fi network to transform any common smartphone into a handy indoor “GPS”. For goods location WiFind includes a low cost BTLE/Wi-Fi tag solution.

Value Proposal

This technology is a scalable and interoperable solution:
- Decreasing the time for goods research;
- It is ubiquitous (maps can be viewed in a mobile device or a personal computer using a web browser);
- With easy space calibration (no georeferenced access points required);
- It is a low-cost solution (it can use current WiFi infrastructure).
This technology allows to:
− Determine the stock reliability (quantity and location);
− Reduce the time of delivery operations;
− Know the exact location of each product.
