UWB Digital Docent Service based on visitor’s location


How can location technology be applied to the culture and arts industry? 

Although we had experience in implementing RTLS in various spaces over the past 10 years, we were able to understand the spatial characteristics and new environment of the museum and experience the challenge of a new business area through various tests and trials to precisely localize the location of an unspecified number of visitors. 


This UWB digital guide project using RTLS technology took place in a very large art museum in the center of Seoul, South Korea.


It brought digitalization to an urban museum where visitors can see a wide variety of artworks, not only in the collection but also through special exhibitions. The digital guide used GeoPlan UWB RTLS indoors to trigger artworks close to the visitor’s location. Visitors are provided with a UWB-equipped smartphone, and with location information collected by UWB anchors through the RTLS infrastructure throughout the museum, when a visitor approaches a particular artwork, information about the artwork, commentary, and more is provided via a mobile applications. 


Location positioning can be seen as a future-oriented and investable technology

because it can eventually accumulate a lot of data. In the future, it will be possible to analyze the number of visitors by artwork, analyze the value of artwork, analyze the taste of visitors, etc. through the data of visitors’ movements, which will enable various services such as planning exhibitions, recommending exhibitions according to individual tastes, and providing customized exhibition viewing routes!
