Ocean Tomo Bid-Ask™ Market announces the auction of 7 issued patents and 4 open applications related to indoor navigation available from MassMutual.


This patented technology is specifically beneficial for companies in the global Wayfinding market.

Ocean Tomo Transactions, LLC will auction a portfolio of 7 issued patents and 4 patent applications for unique methods and systems of Indoor Navigation from MassMutual. Ocean Tomo Bid-Ask™ Market, auction lot 121, offered by MassMutual provides for systems and methods that use beacon technology to provide indoor navigation assistance. The inventive concept captured in this portfolio allows an electronic device to communicate with multiple beacon sensors throughout a building to identify a user’s location as they move about the building. It provides information on hazardous conditions, a way back to origin points, and ways to locate employees and increase interactions while helping to navigate crowded or dangerous worksites.

Large buildings, such as office campuses, can be disorienting and confusing to navigate. This problem is particularly acute when many buildings and floors look the same, which can be troublesome for individuals unfamiliar with the building. Current methods of locating or tracking people are manual and cumbersome. There is need for an efficient and accurate computer system and method to manage indoor navigation, automatically find interested individuals based on their electronic device, and generate notifications to guide employees towards other targeted individuals within the building.

While all patent and application rights are currently held by MassMutual, this portfolio is specifically beneficial for companies in the global Wayfinding market .
