  6. 6. What is a Beacon ? Small wireless device that constantly broadcasts radio signals to nearby smartphones. Allowing indoor location. Based on Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). Advertising Interval (= Frequency). Broadcasting Power (= Range). “ If a beacon exists in the wild and there is no phone around to hear it, does it exist? ”
  7. 7. Bluetooth Low Energy Supported devices: • iOS 7.0+ • Android 4.3+ • Windows 8.0+ a.k.a Bluetooth 4.0 Bluetooth Smart. 2.4 GHz radio frequencies. as Classic Bluetooth, however, use a simpler modulation system. First introduced by in 2006 (Wibree).
  8. 8. Hardware Wireless tiny computers (32-bit ARM CPU, 256KB flash memory, BLE). Run for up to 2 years on a single coin battery. *Depending on : Advertising Interval & Broadcasting Power Estimote SDK extends Apple Core Location. Include motion and temperature sensors. Estimote Beacons:
  9. 9. What should every iBeacon have ? • 3 pieces of identification: UUID, Major, Minor. • 3 more pieces of information: RSSI, TX Power and MAC address. • 2 core functions implementation: Region monitoring , Ranging. • 4 regions division: Immediate, Near,
  10. 10. Some iBeacon Early Adopters
  11. 11. Last but not least…• Not all beacons are iBeacons (iBeacon must follow Apple’s protocol). • The use of beacons requires an app. • iOS will continue to monitor for beacons if an app is not running (in contrast to Android). • Beacons can not collect information about users without their permission (privacy). • Estimote has both iOS & Android app (include features demo and beacons configuration).
