Context

With more than 10.2M visitors per year and its 60,000m2, the Louvre museum can be a real labyrinth for visitors who can easily get lost and waste time searching for the piece of art or exhibition they are looking for.

The solution proposed had to be easily accessible for visitors through their own device as well as provide accurate localisation everywhere including indoors and outdoors.

Once launched, the app should be able to function without the need for internet connection in order to propose a smooth experience to the users.

Solution

Ubudu provides Mobile SDKs for both Android and iOS versions of the Louvre Mobile App that use different sensors from the smartphone to calculate the real-time position of the smartphone that is displayed on the 3D map of the museum. 

A total of around 2000 Ubudu beacons were installed meticulously in the museum making sure that they will not impact the aesthetics of the venue.

Using the Bluetooth, GPS, accelerometer, compass and gyroscope sensors on the smartphone, Ubudu Mobile SDKs are able to calculate the real-time location of the users' smartphones both indoor and outdoor to provide the best experience.
