• The beacons have to be evenly distributed in the location such that the app is never out of the connectivity of any of the beacons at any given position, within the navigating location.

3. Additional requirements for deployment

• The mobile app should be connected to the Internet when the navigation is activated by the user.

• Beacon connectivity needs to be strong between the app and the deployed beacons.
