In this world,still many places Unreachable by GPS.

Location Technology "TAGCAST"

Smartphones spread rapidly and made our lives more convenient. There is nothing special about using a navigation app while walking in the town. However, we still have many places without GPS reception, such as indoors and underground. There are buildings on land, and each building has space. TAGCAST is the Location IoT technology to maintain the infrastructure of location information in that space.

TAGCAST is used for the products which won the following prizes: Grand Prix in Social Innovation Category of the CEATEC AWARD 2014, the finalist of the Microsoft Innovation Award 2016 and 2017, Minister for Internal Affairs and Communications Award of MCPC award 2017, and the first prize of AEON Financial Service Innovation 2017.
