OCC technology that stands for Optical Camera Communication is a one-way communication flow between an LED lamp and a smartphone.
This allows for glocalization with ultra-precision limited strictly and securely to the beam of the LED. It detects the presence of a user under a specific light at a live timeframe.
This solution offers:
- Geo mapping: Geolocation mapping, guidance of the consumer from point A to point B indoor, general services and maintenance.
- Micro localization to deliver geo-localized information.
- Analysis and data collection (geo fencing: behavioral data, flow management, hot zones cold areas
The above use cases are added value for airports, museums, hospitals, train stations, shopping malls, industrial sites, and large public areas where content should be tailored to the needs of the customer.
A duo presentation with Sandrine Gihr by Gregory Botanes, Vicepresident & CGO at Situm Indoor Positioning.
View of the Speaker
Question 1: What drives you?
To promote the enrichment of technologies such as OCC with our minimal infrastructure and fast deployment indoor location technology and the tools that our Situm IPS platform provides for the development of people wayfinding and workforce geo-management solutions.
Question 2: Why should the delegate attend your session?
Indoor positioning integrated with LiFi and OCC Optical Camera Communication enables enhanced user experience of the facility’s app, guiding them with step-by-step directions to where they want to go. This technology also opens the door to geomarketing and merging digital and physical customers.
Question 3: What emerging technologies / trends do you see as having the greatest potential in the short and long run?
More than just a potential technology, indoor positioning is a solution already deployed in shopping malls, hospitals, airports, stadiums, headquarters and other large and complex spaces to improve visitor experience and manage staff more efficiently.
Question 4: What kind of impact do you expect them to have?
Question 5: What are the barriers that might stand in the way?
As in the case of the use of indoor positioning for the geolocation-based workforce management, companies must take the step between the nice-to-have and the must-have if they really want to improve the customer experience.
