GPS content triggering
« on: June 30, 2014, 09:37:30 AM »
Hello,

There is one fucntionality which is very suitable for public transportation and taxi companies.

GPS integrated in the player or the screen (if you use android tablet it is integrated) which determines your position.

Depending on where we are located (determined from the GPS module) a predefined specific content is triggered.

In this manner we are able to create a virtual catalog and let's say a foreigner (which doesn't know the city very well) is

taking a taxi from the airport and while traveling the tablet/screen inside the taxi is giving him suggestions for hotels, restaurants and

etc. considering the current position of the cab.

There is CMS from the company ACQUIRE which has this feature.

What do you think about this suggestion?

Regards

It does seem possible to create something like this via triggers and events, but I don't know if you can send a command to Player that is on cellular?

Thanks,
Adam

Technically it should be possible using events and triggers but you will have to develop an event handler using JS that has to be hosted so that the player gets the events and not sure if this will work offline.. The player will have to be connected

How do you send events to a player running on mobile?  I was testing with my iPhone and this doesn't seem possible?  Doesn't seem possible to get a IP address via the station tab. 

Thanks,
Adam

Will this also be a new player you guys will sell?  Or maybe adding a GPS + 3g, 4g Module option to the mini computer?

yes you can connect to any network, and get a broadband card to connect to a 3G, 4G network
