Android Geofence

Your app won't wake up. We fixed that.

PRIVACY: Data never leaves the phone!

public class PathsenseGeofenceEventReceiver extends BroadcastReceiver
      public void onReceive(Context context, Intent intent)
        PathsenseGeofenceEvent geofenceEvent = PathsenseGeofenceEvent.fromIntent(intent);
        if (geofenceEvent != null)
          if (geofenceEvent.isIngress())
            // ingress
            // do something
          else if (geofenceEvent.isEgress())
            // egress
            // do something

PathSense supports Android versions up to Android 12, and API versions back to API 9

Use of the SDK is free for testing and evaluation under the Evaluation License on our Developer Portal. We, at our discretion, may allow students and startups to use the SDK for free in deployed apps for extended periods of time. Pricing for commercial deployments is based on a variety of factors. We offer both usage based and source code licenses. Please see our pricing section for more information.

This varies between individual modules in the SDK. Some modules require only precise location permission, others require motion and fitness. There is a complete list in the documentation.

Again this varies by individual module. Some modules such as Activity Recognition and Distracted Driving Detection use IMU sensor data and complex machine learning models created by our PhD scientists. Other modules make use of our proprietary location processing algorithms.

Team PathSense has more than 100 man years of experience in mobile location technology, geospatial, sensor fusion, and machine learning. The team has been building mobile location technology since 2003, long before the iPhone and Android existed.

PathSense has various SDKs and modules, not just one SDK. To get a complete list, sign up to access our Develoer Portal now.
