Indoor Positioning Company Qubulus First To Solve Vertical Positioning With QPS™
Seamless floor level switching available in new LocLizard™ platform and in Hansa Mall App for Android
30 MARCH 2011, LONDON, UK - TECHCRUNCH GEEK N ROLLA
SummaryQubulus today announced the release of its free industry-leading Application Positioning Platform LocLizard™ 1.0, which includes QPS™. This revolutionary Positioning engine uses newly developed proprietary algorithms by Qubulus to not only quickly and accurately determine the user's location indoors, but to also differentiate between floor levels to deliver the world's first fully Z-level compliant indoor positioning system.
Qubulus Positioning System (QPS™)
QPS™ listens to the radio signals provided by the mobile phone to determine at which location, in what building and on what floor level the user is on. It is precise enough to help users determine where they are on an indoor map, whether it's in a shopping center, airport, office or any other indoor environment.
From now on there is no need to prompt the user to provide his or her location manually as the property owner or manager can use the LocLizard™ platform, available for free, to enlist their location and make it available to visitors.
QPS™ enables the first really accurate method for X-Y-Z positioning that meets the industry’s demand for real-time auto-location indoors, something that is not possible with GPS. Founder and CEO Ants Maran elaborates on the milestone he and his team accomplished:"Qubulus already provided the most accurate software-only XY positioning in the market and now we are adding the Z-level to it in essence enabling floor level detection."
The LocLizard™ platform is a complete application positioning platform that provides accurate positioning together with the possibilities to collect and analyze the positioning data. It comes with the LocLizard™ positioning client powered by QPS™ which is the world’s first application to support multi-floor locations and it handles floor switching seamlessly without any user interaction independently if done using the elevators, escalators or ordinary stairs.
Hansa Mall App
"With this release of the Hansa Mall App with QPS™ for the Android Market, we’ve introduced a revolutionary and groundbreaking indoor map and positioning service,” says Ants Maran. “We will continue to release updates of this app to incorporate more space covered and more functionality both in the app and online. We're helping catalyze the industry to solve the 'indoor positioning problem', and this release sets an example on how to use our platform to develop services and apps.” The Qubulus Hansa Mall App with QPS™ is available for free from the Android Market for Android phones 1.6 or newer and can be used by visitors to the mall in Malmö.
