Build Status Maintainability npm version


This component offers react-native nodes. Each node uses peer dependencies for


  • IMUSourceNode: IMU source node that uses the internal sensors.
  • BLESourceNode: BLE source node that scans for (specific) BLE advertisements.
  • WLANSourceNode: WLAN source node that scans for Wi-Fi access points (Android only).
  • GeolocationSourceNode: Processed geolocation data from native APIs.

Peer Dependencies

@openhps/react-native uses peer dependencies to create OpenHPS compatible data frames. When using a certain source node, you will have to install one or more of these dependencies manually.

Getting Started

If you have npm installed, start using @openhps/react-native with the following command.

npm install @openhps/react-native --save



The BLE source node scans for Bluetooth low energy devices using react-native-ble-plx as a peer dependency.


The IMU source node uses react-native-sensors as a peer depedency to gather magnetometer, gyroscope, accelerometer and orientation data in an IMUDataFrame.


With the WLAN source node that uses react-native-wifi-reborn as a peer dependency, you can get a complete scan list of Wi-Fi access points.


High level geolocation source node using react-native-geolocation-service.


The framework is open source and is mainly developed by PhD Student Maxim Van de Wynckel as part of his research towards Hybrid Positioning and Implicit Human-Computer Interaction under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Beat Signer.
