Hospitals are often large and complex, featuring a labyrinth of corridors and floors. StrataGuide uses programmable beacons in concert with our StrataCloud server(s), so that a client beacon is able to report its exact location in the facility, including floor, room number, placement in corridor, etc., to a server hosting the facility map layout. The user sees a representative avatar walking about the facility while receiving directions (i.e. turn right in 15 feet, take elevator to 1st floor, etc.).
