App developers – easy integration
Phone-FUEL™ SDK is an easy to use software development kit (SDK) that is deployable on all major smart-device operating systems (iOS, Android and more) that enables the positioning of smart mobile devices. As a cloud-executed positioning service, after Phone-FUEL™ initialization, the mobile smart-device positioning operates independently of the local network availability. In addition, Phone-FUEL™ works in app background mode, ensuring low processing demands and battery consumption. Because it runs in the background, accurate positioning data is delivered even when the screen is off or the device is in a pocket or covered by a piece of clothing. The proprietary Fast Ultrasound Echo Location “FUEL”™ technology uses a particular, high-resolution technique that leverages the unique and powerful acoustic reflections only delivered through ultrasound. Want to use it in your app? Contact us here.
Mobile device manufacturers – Forkbeard device compatibility program
Forkbeard uses industry-standard mobile device technologies, and is thus compatible with the vast majority of consumer smartphone available. Forkbeard and its partners go the extra mile, however, to make sure that professional mobile devices are compatible as well. At present, we have established compatibility programs with Ascom, Honeywell, Spectralink, and Zebra.
