Wayfinding In Hospitals using Smart phone devices

By: Edward Cheng

How many people have gotten lost in a hospital? How many people have forgotten where they have parked their car or which entrance they have come in from in a large hospital? This will help patient, visitor and even hospital staff to find their way through a hospital. The wayfinding web application will use the hospital WIFI network to triangulate the position of the user’s smart phone. It will provide a view of the hospital layout and the user’s location on the smart phone.
