The challenge


The solution

contagt offers a commercial indoor navigation platform. The platform contains native apps for Android and iOS, a web interface, SDKs, and a REST API. contagt supports localization via bluetooth beacons, WiFi, GPS, sensor fusion, and QR/NFC markers. Indoor maps are provided as downloadable guides which can be managed by a web-based backend. Guides include access restriction options and features can be extended by plugins.
