UT has the skills and expertise to further develop Indoor Navigation – a type of Google Maps/TomTom route planner that also works indoors, meaning that you can load a map of the campus map on your phone. Just say: ‘I want to go to the UT Visa Office’ and the app will then lead you straight to the right room at the Vrijhof by using Wi-Fi access points, GPS et cetera.

The question is whether we will be able to realize this together with our colleagues at IT/Signals and EWI. Indoor navigation has tremendous potential: finding your way at city hall, navigating large and complex industrial buildings, introducing students to campus life et cetera.
