Project's scopeCoinciding with the Silesian Museum’s move to new premises, an idea arose to create not only a new mobile application, but to actually develop an entire management system for the app and the museum's special interactive information kiosks.
ChallengeThe challenge involved creating a reliable navigation system, to guide visitors through the Silesian Museum’s new premises and the large number of available exhibitions.
Technologies used in this project
SolutionThe first task was to create a suitable backend and content management system (CMS). This involved developing iOS and Android app including, among others, reliable location services for the premises. To achieve this, we had to install several hundred beacons, deployed in relevant location, as well as configured and calibrated to ensure precise navigation on museum grounds. This has been one of the largest beacon implementation projects in Poland, and in fact in Europe. The project involved physically placing the beacons inside the Silesian Museum. We have also integrated the backend that we developed, the CMS, and the Museum’s website with the interactive information kiosks available to visitors. To do that, we had to create a tailor-made API that allows these devices connect to the system and download data. Last, but not least, we trained museum staff in using the CMS, and administrators from the server back-office management.
