Trying Out Qubulus’s QPS API
The first test of the Qubulus indoor positioning system was using Gecko, the app used for recording the radio signals on-site. Once the guys have processed the site on their backend, they send a fingerprint file which can be added to Gecko, allowing you to switch to Location Mode.
