A system for determining location and creating realtime augmented reality experiences on a human scale using a visually coded floor is presented. The user uses an app on their mobile device that shows an augmented reality path overlaid on top of their camera feed. The floor of the indoor space is divided into regions overlaid with uniquely identifiable QR codes. To create the path, the camera detects coded patterns in the floor and references the coded patterns against a Cloud map of the space to draw a path between identified patterns and lead the user to their desired destination. The system is flexible and adaptable to rapidly changing environments and it can give an exact location that is much more accurate than the fuzzy location given by wireless technologies.
