Forkbeard will present and demonstrate its mobile indoor positioning technology at MWC 2019 Los Angeles.

Their platform leverages smartphone audio processing capabilities to deliver down-to-the-centimeter location accuracy with sub-second latency. Presently in extensive use in medical facilities worldwide, indoor positioning technology impacts dozens of enterprise industries including logistics, warehousing, smart buildings and homes, data centers, manufacturing plants, retail, hospitality and more.

“The Forkbeard technology platform provides unparalleled accuracy and reliability for indoor positioning of smartphones, tablets and other smart devices running on Android and iOS operating systems,” said Forkbeard CEO Wilfred Booij. “The ability to leverage the existing capabilities of billions of smart devices already on the market enables rapid adoption across multiple market verticals.”

“From simple indoor navigation support to support of contextual location-based workflow and safety solutions, truly accurate indoor positioning technologies will spur accelerated growth in this multibilliondollar global market,” said Forkbeard’s Senior Vice President of Business Development and Alliances Terry Aasen.

According to Booij, Forkbeard leverages its patented Ultrasound technology to produce positioning accuracy results that are far superior to the radio frequency-based technologies used by others within the industry. In fact, the Forkbeard sonar smartphone indoor positioning technology is roughly 100 times more accurate than standalone Bluetooth, WiFi, or RFID based positioning solutions, the company claims.
