Wifarer is more than a mobile software company - we are at the forefront of IPS research. We hold a robust portfolio of intellectual property related to indoor positioning and navigation, and have received many awards for our innovations. Our research scientists are continuously refining our algorithms and inventing the features that have established us as industry leaders. Early on, we mastered seamless indoor-outdoor navigation and refined our algorithms to ensure reliable floor transitions in multi-story locations. Our recent advances include improving our indoor positioning accuracy even further with data from several different phone sensors , and pioneering exciting new machine-to-machine transactions.
Wifarer was founded in 2010 in Victoria B.C. By 2011, we had filed our first patents, piloted our solution, and won the first of many awards for innovation. In 2012, we launched our indoor “GPS” app at the Royal BC Museum - the first in the world to locate exclusively with standard commercial WiFI, with no expensive custom hardware. In 2012, we opened our San Jose office and began our US expansion. We are deploying new locations as fast as we can process requests including such great venues as the Dallas Cowboys Stadium and the Vancouver International Airport.
