Shall we tell you a little more ?
Okeenea : who are we ?
Okeenea Digital is a subsidiary of the Okeenea Group, specialists in the conception and supply of accessibility solutions since 1993 ! Among other things, we invented the audible beacons for traffic lights. For the past 2 years, we have been innovating with the Evelity digital indoor guidance solution for all types of disability, for all types of public buildings.
How does Evelity work ?
Within Evelity, we provide a turnkey solution allowing precise mapping and navigation inside your building open to the public.
But concretely, how does it work ? Our team studies the plans of your facilities and defines the implementation of a network of bluetooth beacons. Thanks to these beacons, we can guide your travelers from a point A to a point B.
We integrate a technological layer of type "sensor fusion" allowing the localization of the user's smartphone by integrating a network of beacons (bluetooth beacons) and the GPS to treat the surroundings of the buildings. We add algorithms to the geographical data sources to associate the "raw" position with its "probable" position on a location. This is the indoor geolocation technology.
Building open to public : micro-location VS indoor geolocation
Micro-location in building open to public is a limited technology that allows to locate a person when he is close to a beacon (point of interest or landmark). It does not allow a precise and continuous indoor wayfinding.
Indoor geolocation, on the other hand, allows indoor navigation like a GPS, with an accuracy of 1m50 and step-by-step instructions. With Evelity, this is the technology we use, recommend and improve every day.
How long will it take to deploy the solution ?
It depends on the surface to be equipped with Evelity, it can go from a few days to tens of days. Contact us to find out more!

Is an experimental period possible ?
Yes, an experimentation period is possible for facilities with a large surface to cover and important visitor flows (subways, train stations, airports, etc.). We talk about "Pilot" with ideally a part of the complex equipped. The objective is to perform a demonstration with the visitors of the facility and to exchange with local users before working on a larger deployment.
How does user testing work ?
During the trial phase, if chosen by the client, a user test is conducted in collaboration between Okeenea Digital, the client, and local visually impaired associations on a voluntary basis.
We recruit 8 to 12 visually disabled people with different demographics. Most of the people are members of a visually impaired association in order to be representative of the local users exchanging with the operator.
Field tests last on average 1 hour per user (handover, itinerary, route and questionnary). Contact us for more information !
