Traditional active RFID deployments have typically involved tags and readers made by (or for) a single vendor, resulting in tight control over the system. With the widespread commercial adoption of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), today it is common to detect everything from consumer products such as smartphones, wearables and smart home electronics, to commercial and industrial products, which actively identify themselves using standardised advertising packets. Moreover, there are plenty of off-the-shelf devices capable of acting as readers, from purpose-built devices to generic single-board-computers to the smartphone in your pocket.
