In order to provide indoor geolocation services, companies like Sweepin have to rely on 3D mapping of an establishment's buildings.

3D mapping, the basis of indoor geolocation

3D mapping of a building is a detailed representation of its structure, offering a realistic and comprehensive perspective. Drawing up a 3D plan enables you to visualize the height, shape and layout of a building's different levels.

A connection can be made to the Digital Twin to facilitate the creation and updating of a building's cartography. The Digital Twin is a real-time virtual reconstruction of a physical object or process, used to simulate, monitor and optimize its operation. In particular, this system enables more efficient resource management by simulating different layouts and space configurations to optimize plant utilization. It also enables proposed changes to be simulated and evaluated to minimize errors and costs.

Over time, the buildings of a facility, such as a hospital, are bound to evolve, be redeveloped or even restructured. Their mapping then needs to be updated to provide a consistently accurate map for geolocation services.

Quick and easy updating of building plans with intuitive tools

Updating a building's cartography can seem tedious if it includes a lot of changes. It's up to companies like Sweepin to make updating easier, especially when the changes don't affect the building's architecture.

Once the first 3D map has been created from the architect's plans, various elements of the plan, such as style, access features and points of interest, can be easily modified. Easy-to-use tools make it possible to quickly update all these mapping elements without calling in the professionals.

The flexibility offered by these tools guarantees an accurate, up-to-date representation of the environment. In this way, the building's functional evolutions are taken into account over time. This proactive approach to updating mapping contributes to efficient space management and optimal use of resources, particularly in facilities such as hospitals.

The case of Sweepin and its 3D plan editor

Sweepin uses the Digital Twin to provide its customers with their digital cartography. In addition to this, a 3D plan editor is entirely dedicated to the company's healthcare facility customers. This editor is easily accessible by any facility wishing to update its 3D mapping. It provides a range of features to give healthcare facilities control over certain elements of their cartography whenever they wish. The interface is intuitive and fluid, and each tool is clearly identified to simplify the updating process as much as possible.

The style of a building can be easily modified, including its color. Changing the color helps to distinguish each department of a healthcare facility. It can be changed at will, but always strategically, especially when a department moves from one building to another.

If required, it is also possible to quickly and easily change the accessibility of a building's corridors, by defining their priority and whether or not the public can use them. This can be useful for managing the flow of people through the building, or for preventing certain areas from becoming congested in an emergency.

Finally, it is also possible to add, modify or delete points of interest in a building, in case some of them change location or are removed during relocations.

Major modifications, particularly to the building's architecture, can be carried out either via an automatic update of the Digital Twin, or by specialists due to their technical complexity and the time required to carry them out.

Around the world, connected cities are gaining ground, and with them, the use of mobile applications is becoming the norm. These mobile applications can make a significant contribution to enhancing the safety of a city's inhabitants, by facilitating communication between the various players involved in safety, enabling the rapid reporting of incidents or dangerous situations, and facilitating the intervention of emergency services in the event of an emergency.

Mobile reporting applications for incidents

Mobile applications with a module for reporting incidents or dangerous situations on the public highway are gaining in popularity in smart cities. They enable citizens to quickly notify the appropriate authorities in the event of a problem. These applications can be used to report incidents such as road safety problems, acts of vandalism, fires, medical emergencies and so on.

These applications allow users to take photos or videos to describe the incident in greater detail. The data collected is then forwarded to the reports management service, which assesses the situation and deploys help if necessary.

Reports can be made anonymously by people who fear reprisals, or who do not wish to be involved in an investigation, for example.

As well as facilitating the reporting of incidents, these applications can also help the authorities to collect data on incidents occurring in the city. This data can then be used to identify the areas most at risk, to draw up action plans and improve safety, and finally to evaluate the effectiveness of the safety measures put in place on the territories.

It is important to note that for these mobile applications to be effective, it is necessary to ensure that the relevant authorities have the necessary resources to manage the information received and respond rapidly to emergency situations. It is also important to make citizens aware of the use of these applications, and to explain to them how to report incidents automatically and effectively.

Geolocation: a major asset for emergency services

Geolocation is another key tool for enhancing safety in connected cities. Mobile applications can use geolocation to enable emergency services to quickly locate people in danger during an emergency situation. This enables them to respond more quickly and effectively.

Real-time awareness and communication

Mobile applications also serve as communication channels, informing citizens in real time of dangers and instructions to follow in the event of an emergency, often via instant notifications.

Mobile applications represent a powerful lever for improving urban safety, in particular by optimizing communication between the various safety stakeholders. Find out more about our reporting module and all the other features available on our website!

Healthcare facilities are demanding environments where staff safety is an absolute priority. Geolocation, when used thoughtfully and ethically, proves to be a powerful tool for reinforcing this security. In this article, discover the benefits of using geolocation to protect staff, thanks to solutions like the one offered by Sweepin.

Enhanced employee safety

Staff safety in healthcare establishments is paramount, and geolocation offers an effective means of reinforcing it. When a member of staff feels in danger, solutions have been developed so that they can easily raise the alarm and be helped as quickly as possible.

For example, by being equipped with a badge or smartwatch, he can trigger an alert and thus activate his geolocation, enabling the security team to know his exact position instantly. This feature can save lives, as it enables faster intervention in the event of an emergency. By knowing where the person in distress is, rescue teams can reduce response times and maximize the chances of saving lives.

Staff stress is reduced and their privacy preserved

Thanks to this reinforced protection, staff stress and anxiety are reduced. Less stressed staff are more productive and healthier, which benefits staff, facilities and patients alike, who need the best possible care.

One of the key advantages of using geolocation via a smartwatch or badge is that it is not permanent. Geolocation is only activated when staff want it to be, by triggering an alert, thus guaranteeing their privacy and reinforcing their sense of security.

Incident documentation

Geolocation provides a digital trace of incidents, which can prove invaluable for internal investigations, safety reports and the prevention of potential future incidents. Accurate documentation contributes to in-depth analysis and the development of effective long-term solutions to ensure everyone's well-being and safety.

The thoughtful use of geolocation for personnel protection in healthcare facilities brings undeniable benefits in terms of safety, staff and patient wellbeing, but also in terms of prevention. It is imperative that companies offering these services put in place clear policies and comply with local regulations to ensure ethical and responsible use of this technology, while obtaining staff consent.
