Bhubaneswar: IT major Honeywell has developed a new app named “BhuNav” in order to provide directions on a map for various places inside the Odisha Hockey Men’s World Cup -2018 in Kalinga stadium complex.
“BhuNav” is an indoor GPS, that has been developed for Bhubaneswar Smart City Limited (BSCL) and Hockey Federation of India. Honeywell, which is also a stakeholder for creating the IT infrastructure across the city, “BhuNav” is helping the visitors to navigate the massive 5,000 square yards stadium.
The App has a built-in navigation system similar to Google Maps to help users find points of interest (POI’s) or people inside buildings.
The “BhuNav” App is different from the traditional navigational services as it not only shows the path but also helps one to navigate between multiple floors which means one can view the transit from one floor to another.
The new App will help citizens to connect with the stadiums, museums, government facilities across the city. However, presently only Kalinga Stadium Complex is connected to the App.
This App could be used in different areas of the stadium and can help citizens to find the points of interest (like FAN village, parking, restrooms, food stalls, entry-exits etc.)
The app provides the user’s current location on the map in real time with a blue dot. It helps in location sharing facility, save locations in visiting list and most importantly, provide offline navigation.
“BhuNav” App is available for download on Google Play Store and Apple IOs Store.
