Making MSU Campus Easier to Navigate with Accessible Navigation Technology

Evelyn Tichenor, Leslie Johnson, and Mike May

GoodMaps has worked with MSU to implement accessible indoor navigation technology in the MSU Stem and Bessey Hall buildings. This new technology utilizes LiDAR and 360 degree imagery to develop accurate indoor digital maps of indoor spaces. Once the maps are developed, GoodMaps Explore, our navigation app, uses camera based positioning to navigate a user through a building with turn by turn navigation. This positioning technology provides 2-3 feet accuracy and can accurately direct a user through a space. Learn about the MSU implementation and how it can be utilized by anyone entering the buildings.
