During Nokia World 2010, Nokia Research Center demoed some of its future technologies currently in development. The most interesting was the Indoor Navigator, which allows users to navigate indoors by connecting devices to a transmitter within a building that can figure out the angle at which your device is linking from. This was possible thanks to a research concept called Nokia High Accuracy Indoor Positioning technology, the most accurate of its kind in the world. Hit the jump for the video demo.
“The expectation is that buildings will be constructed with the transmitters already installed to allow its users to find their way around using their mobile devices. It’s also a one-way, receive only technology, so there aren’t the privacy worries that go alongside some kinds of location services.” Ian Delaney, Managing Editor at Nokia Conversations.Tags | 2010, Applications, Connectivity, Demo, Future, GPS, Indoor Navigation, Location, Navigation, Nokia, Nokia Research Centre, Nokia World, Nokia World 2010, NW10, Research & Development, Software, Symbian, Symbian^3, Touch UI, Video
