GE Current, a Daintree company and Pointr recently announced a partnership to enable location-based services in large buildings such as retail premises, warehouses, workplaces, and distribution centers.
Current smart lighting combined with Pointr’s location-based services deliver valuable applications to retailers, warehouses, and industrial premises, providing the ability to understand the precise location of employees and visitors using any Android or iOS devices, such as smartphones or Honeywell devices.
Key benefits include:
- Hyper-accurate indoor positioning: Accurate indoor positioning is crucial to enable location-based services such as indoor wayfinding, location sharing and asset tracking. Pointr’s Deep Location® technology uses machine-learning techniques to ensure 1 meter location accuracy, even in complex buildings.
- Disinfectant lighting: Clinically proven disinfectant lighting is the ideal germicidal UV solution for any occupied space. Current’s technology has the ability to significantly reduce common pathogens while being safe for human exposure.
- Contact tracing: With the WorkSafe™ contact tracing app and dashboard, employers can quickly identify exposed employees for testing, potentially limiting widespread facility closures.
- Occupancy & congestion management: Building managers can monitor visitor flows, bottlenecks and density using occupancy and congestion analytics. By monitoring how many people are in specific zones of the buildings, employers ensure there is no overcrowding within the venue.
