Ferrovial Services Spain starts an indoor localization system based on Situm's technology

The indoor localization system enables to detect hot spots, optimize worker’s routes, reduce pre-operation times, and optimize resources.


After six months of tests at the offices of one of Ferrovial’s main clients, the project’s success has been confirmed by its optimal functioning in office spaces, on rooves, and in underground parking lots, demonstrating the reliability of the system.

The system manages to cross movement information collected by smartphones sensors with the intensity of Wi-Fi signals to determine its precise locationinside a building where GPS coverage is scarce or absent. That way, it’s not necessary to install extra infrastructure (except in dead zones) to locate a mobile device with a margin of error less than 3 meters.

The tool enables to detect hot spots, optimize worker’s routes, reduce pre-operation times, and optimize resources.

This technology will now be available for Ferrovial's contracts that show interest in its applications. Such is the case, for instance, of customer service and the guide service for people with reduced mobility at airports.

This post is based on Ferrovial's press release.
