Indoor wayfinding has evolved dramatically in recent decades – from printed signs and maps, to digital, yet still static, maps on monitors, to interactive touch screen kiosks. Now, with Internet connected smartphones in nearly everyone’s pockets these days, 22MILES Mobile Wayfinding system shifts the paradigm once more.
“Did you know that ‘30% of first time visitors reported confusion’ and that ‘25% of staff members cannot find some destinations’ within their campus.”
– Mark VanderKlipp “Sign of the Times” Medical Construction and Design.

Mobile Wayfinding App with 22 Miles AR Plug-in capabilities:
Augmented Reality is now a Reality…AR brings a new human interface to react to imagery in the user’s environment, especially in an environment the user is not familiar with; It can be difficult for users to locate an object that’s not positioned onscreen, and a mobile AR app could help users navigate to those objects easier, and with a clearer direction to start.
- Currently in the market we have only see AR be utilized in popularity for video games and infotainment based demos, but seldom has AR in commercial use been released for business clients and organizational environments.
- AR with wayfinding has a lot great potential for smart buildings. New applications can be deployed everyday as the technology is used. 22 Miles platform provides for that creative flexibly to start producing new corporate results.
