Incorporating SenionLab with Micello Maps
Obviously I was keen to try this out, so I got in touch with the guys and explained what I was doing. They said they were happy to map the mall where I’ve been testing, and added my request to the queue. I provided to-scale floor plans and directed them to where they could find more information, and that was all they needed. While I was waiting, I familiarised myself with the Android SDK using the sample application provided and some maps already in existence. I had an idea of what I wanted to achieve (similar to the maps app in iOS) so set about dissecting the code.
It took a few weeks in between other projects and a bit of customising the code but eventually I managed to get an app together working how I wanted. Handily enough at just about that time the guys at Micello let me know that my map was ready to go. Having tested the SenionLab local positioning, it seemed like an ideal opportunity to hook up their web service API and see how that performed too. The results are below – pretty damn cool I’d say!
