Navin patented technology breakthrough enables fast upscale, to become the world's #1 community based pedestrian guidance and navigation app.
The key problem is that GPS signals are unavailable inside buildings, rendering existing solutions useless. Whatever works for roads, does not work inside buildings. As a result, indoor venues, like hospitals, universities and airports, install thousands of beacons or manually map existing WiFi/magnetic field for every building, floor by floor. This is not a scalable approach.
Navin’s patented P2P Crowd Mapping offers a dramatically different approach that turns smartphones into anonymous mapping devices. Smartphones captures indoor structure using F-16 grade stabilization, noise canceling and drift correction algorithms.
Just like waze and moovit, navin is crowdsourced and community based. With navin places are automatically mapped by the crowd without any manual efforts and without cooperation from location owners. This friction-free, self-deploying virality, enables the company to pursue a unique go-to-market strategy and deliver value in millions of locations that competing solutions would never be able to reach.
Navin disrupts a $23Bn market, by making millions of public buildings worldwide navigable seamlessly, indoors and out with turn-by-turn guidance. Navin team is built for the mission, our chairman founded and sold 8 companies.
Navin is deployed in leading sites, has 12 employees, raised $1.5M in two funding rounds, graduated top accelerator programs – EISP 8200 and Microsoft Ventures, has deep patent applications in key territories and secured $450K from the Israel Innovation Authority.
