Leveraging the power of indoor location data

Navenio can be used as a powerful tool in your business’s own applications where you want to leverage, utilise and benefit from indoor location data for different users.

Navenio’s AI-led location-based solutions help to transform workflow in hospitals by enabling confirmation of team members’ movements, both past and present, to inform decision-making and facilitate location being integrated into existing apps and platforms.

Underpinned by award-winning University of Oxford science, Navenio has pioneered easy to deploy, accurate, scalable and robust indoor location-based solutions that works where GPS does not. Enabled simply by using sensors in smartphones with no need for investment in new infrastructure.

Infrastructure-free localisation using just a smartphone

  • Robust odometry across people, trolleys and vehicles
  • Uses IMU data from a smartphone’s sensors for navigation
  • PDR algorithms adjust for the different ways a smartphone is held and overcome sensor noise to derive accurate user movement
  • Deep learning based pose estimation can use inertial data only (acceleration and gyroscope) for continuous asset tracking – e.g. for trolley motion estimation
  • In environments where both inertial and camera data are available, deep learning visual inertial odometry approaches offer low drift odometry for vehicles and robots, as well as for people using VR/AR applications


  • Patented map-matching algorithms constrain a user’s odometry to the features of the map
  • Works with noisy trajectories and floorplans where changes may have occurred


  • Uses a fusion of inertial, GPS and Wi-Fi data to accurately detect the time/ place of entry and exit into a building
  • Algorithms work when we do or do not have knowledge of the location of entry/exit points


  • Algorithms can localise people across multiple floors without prior knowledge of floor change transitions
  • Using pressure, inertial and signal-map data, Navenio’s technology identifies floor-change transitions and what floor a user is moving to


  • Experience maps are built via crowdsourcing users’ movements using inertial, pressure, Wi-Fi, BLE and GPS data
  • Using a Wi-Fi or BLE scan, Navenio’s technology can detect the 3D location of a user on an experience map

How it works in your environment

Our technology has multiple applications and can be integrated into different platforms to provide details of staff location, presence, movements and audit trails, for use with applications such as secure messaging, nurse communications or patient flow applications, for example.

  • Simply requires users to carry a smartphone device running the Navenio Location App – no need for any user interaction
  • The Navenio Location App provides a continuous trace of a user’s movements
  • GPS geofences ensure location tracking is shutdown outside the hospital, and vice-versa. Data is processed in our secure cloud
  • Location data includes regions/zone information configured at set-up e.g. ward/corridor name
  • Near real-time XML/HL7/FHIR or similar feed to an integration engine or app that has an RTLS interface
  • Integration with SSO solutions enables user details to be provided without the need for a separate login for the Navenio Location App

The science behind our infrastructure-free technology

Navenio’s Intelligent Workforce Solution is created from world-class University of Oxford science. Using only a smartphone’s sensors, the fusion of core technologies creates a highly scalable indoor location, providing actionable insight immediately – which in turn feeds Navenio’s advanced scheduling AI for optimum performance. The technology can work with or without a building map and is robust to within a few meters. It also has no reliance on traditional location systems such as GPS, Beacons or RFID.
