We interrupt your regularly scheduled Android N 24/7 coverage to bring you this important breaking news segment.
Do you work in a big office building of several floors with hundreds of others employees and dozens of different divisions interspersed without any logic? Do you find trouble navigating that office when you have a meeting or lose time looking for the coworkers you need to collaborate with? Then Sony has the solution to your woes.
From Xperia Labs comes Smart Office, an app that requires "Sony mobile's indoor positioning" installation. What that hardware is or how your boss can get their hands on it, I couldn't tell, but the app's developers say you can get in touch if you're interested in installing it in your facilities.
Once the system is installed, users can benefit from complete mapping of their office with indoor positioning to make it easier to navigate through the hallway maze. There are notifications to help you leave and get to meetings on time based on how long it'll take you to walk there, room availability for empty nearby spaces that you can use for an impromptu meeting, and a location sharing feature with specific coworkers so you can find each other faster inside the office.
The app is free but you're going to need the system installed in your office for it to be of any use to you.
