VIEWAR: Championing Indoor Positioning

Founded in 2011, VIEWAR offers a complete infrastructure to create, manage, test and publish augmented reality applications. The company’s AR ecosystem includes turnkey and out-of-the-box solutions that can be used in many areas, including indoor navigation, remote assistance, predictive maintenance or product visualization. VIEWAR makes AR setup convenient for clients by combining a visual-based approach with a 3D scan. The 3D scan can be used for navigation path calculation, the admin interface (authoring), and also for occlusion. The whole setup process is so simple that it can be done by a trainee within a few days.

“Our solutions have already proven themselves in many areas and industries, such as the museum sector, manufacturing, and education. The world’s largest AR navigation installation in the Vienna Technical Museum was successfully implemented with our software solutions,” says Markus Meixner, the Founder and CEO of VIEWAR.

For indoor positioning, VIEWAR uses a visual recognition approach, using a 3D scan of the location, which makes the setup process simple.
All alternatives with beacons, QR codes, stickers, and ceiling antennas are much more complex and error-prone. Indoor positioning can be expanded with additional features such as workflows, remote assistance, IoT data, and everything else the VIEWAR suite encompasses.

VIEWAR’s indoor navigation solution INDOAR helps users optimize their routes and always find the quickest way around any location. The company is simplifying the challenging task of indoor navigation in complex buildings such as modern airports, shopping malls, factories, large office buildings, museums, cruise ships, and hospitals. With INDOAR the user can display digital routes and additional content (text, videos, and 3D objects) on their device anytime during navigation. This helps visitors to either find the shortest way to their destination or use predefined routes as guided tours.

VIEWAR is constantly developing new features and expanding its software solutions. The company provides an abstraction layer for available hardware and software systems. This means that the latest technologies are integrated and implemented, and they are therefore always at the cutting edge.

“VIEWAR is on its way to becoming a leading partner for more sophisticated clients who want a reliable indoor navigation solution. Bigger clients especially in the medical and public sector are going to be the focus in the future,” states Meixner.
