For the ‘Z’ generation, life would be inconceivable without smart devices, furthermore they would like to reach every useful information instantly. In the digital society it is getting more and more important to give the most important information for the users through their smart devices. During our research we made groups of users with the help of smart beacons, and beyond indoor positioning we gave them extra information, like electronic notes, closed book exam etc. One of the main goals in our development was to use our smart devices instead of paper to reduce the expenses of the university. For the indoor positioning, with the help of a pointcloud, we produced a 3D map beside the vectorgraphical, which is going to be the basic of further developments, as well as we created a surface on the physical web, where administrative operations can be made by the students and teachers.
