  21. 21. 23 Greetings and Notifications Trigger welcome messages on arrival, after a certain dwell time, or after departure
  22. 22. 24 Offers / Promotions Trigger offers in certain areas, or make them “unlockable” only if in the store or specific area
  23. 23. 25 Points or Rewards Trigger points for walking in
  24. 24. 26 Store “re-arranges” itself As you move - so what’s nearest is under the thumb
  25. 25. 27
  26. 26. 28 “eCommerce Style Science, for real world Locations”
  27. 27. Data. Data. And Data. Same as eCommerce: where, how long, who came back, what engaged, etc.
  28. 28. 31 Use Cases See a great list at Mobisfera (link at end)
  29. 29. 32 Sports / Stadia

  39. 39. 42 OFFERS PUSH Lots of the initial focus has been on “pushing offers”. Not good!
  40. 40. 43 Instead : ask yourself - “what would Steve do” :-)
  41. 41. 44 Bluetooth, BLE, and Beacons How the Bluetooth Standard helps power proximity Apple, iBeacon, and Use Cases Where iBeacon fits with BLE and who’s using it Google Physical Web and Eddystone The Google approach to Proximity The Beacosystem A run through the increasingly crowded Beacon / iBeacon “space” Proximity The Near and the Now Issues, Trends and Resources Step back for a look at some issues, and links for more information 1 2 3 4 5 6
  42. 42. 45 Physical Web
  43. 43. 46
  44. 44. Proximity approaches compared iBeacon vs Physical Web 47 Product Source Hardware Shipping Apple product, APIs and functionality baked in to iOS, many hardware manufacturers Beacon Payload iBeacon Physical Web Right now a Project, no in-built support in Android or elsewhere Alerts / Background Specification is public, controlled by Apple Open Source project, Apache 2.0 Licence Bluetooth Low Energy Beacons, Specification by Apple, must be certified to manufacture iBeacon Bluetooth Low Energy Beacons, Specification by Google, anyone can manufacture ProximityUUID, Major and Minor code URL formatted according to URIBeacon Specification iOS allows background notifications No proactive alerts, and no background scanning
  45. 45. pronounced YUR-ee-BEE-kun URIBeacon ‣ Original specification for Beacon format etc. ‣ Now superseded / absorbed by Eddystone 48
  46. 46. 49 UriBeacon advertises a URL Physical Web App sees UriBeacons nearby, displays them in order of nearness UriBeacons transmit URLs, App interprets URL… Google Physical Web : how it works Site / Content Interactive Web Deep link to App Controls over connected device URL can lead to… 1 2 3 4
  47. 47. Story so far Google Proximity Timeline 50 2013 2013 2014 2015 BLE Hardware in various Android devices, no official APIs, some manufacturer APIs == confusion JellyBean First real BLE support in 4.3 - scanning, GATT etc. Physical Web September 2014: Physical web appeared as a project, with URIBeacon spec. Eddystone July : Eddystone announced - major evolution in approach to proximity Proximity and Nearby APIs Proximity APIs released; Nearby and Place APIs now Beacon-aware iOS Today Widget For Chrome on iOS - now hunts for Beacons nearby when tapped
  48. 48. 51
  49. 49. Google’s open standard for Beacons Eddystone™ ‣ Protocol Specification ‣ Defines the message format for messages transmitted by Beacons ‣ Designed to work on Android and iOS ‣ Frames used to define use cases • Three initial types: URL, UID, TLM ‣ Extensible 52
  50. 50. Used to broadcast a URL URL Frame : Eddystone-URL ‣ Goal: get a URL to receiver ‣ Compressed to fit in advertisement packet restrictions of Bluetooth Smart ‣ Described as “backbone of the Physical Web” ‣ This now does what URIBeacon used to do 53
  51. 51. Used to broadcast a unique ID UID Frame : Eddystone-UID ‣ Contains an opaque, unique 16-byte Beacon ID composed of • 10-byte namespace ID • 6-byte instance ID ‣ You decide how you might use the UIDs • e.g. namespace == customer, instance == individual beacon • handy for filtering (I’m only looking for Brown Thomas Beacons, so filter on namespace 495464) ‣ You can (kinda) think of the UID use case as being the “iBeacon” use case 54
  52. 52. Used to pass on Device information Telemetry Frame : Eddystone-TLM ‣ Battery voltage ‣ Temperature ‣ Light ‣ Packets / activity ‣ Uptime ‣ (etc.) 55
  53. 53. 56
  54. 54. Cloud based store for Beacon information Proximity API ‣ REST API - core is the Beacon Resource • beaconName, AdvertisedID, Status, Expected stability, Latitude and longitude coordinates, Indoor floor level, Google Places API Place ID, Freeform text ‣ Status • Active, Decommissioned, Inactive ‣ Stability • Stable. portable, mobile, roving ‣ Beacon Methods • Activate, Deactivate, Decommission, Get, List, Register, Update 57
  55. 55. Cloud based store for Beacon information Proximity API ‣ beaconName • Has the format "beacons/N!beaconId" where the beaconId is the base16 ID broadcast by the beacon and N is a code for the beacon's type. Possible values are 3 for Eddystone, 1 for iBeacon, or 5 for AltBeacon ‣ AdvertisedID • Enum (EDDYSTONE, IBEACON, ALTBEACON) • Id (String) - the UUID being broadcast by the Beacon 58
  56. 56. Google proximity ecosystem Getting wired-in to wider ecosystem Proximity Beacon API Eddystone Hardware Nearby Message API Places API Chrome iOS Widget More flexible and extensible than iBeacon == developer friendly Cloud based management for Beacons and metadata Eddystone proving attractive to many Beacon manufacturers On iOS, the Today Chrome widget now scans for Beacons Subscribe to messages attached to Beacons Can register PlaceID with Beacons - acts as signal to Places API

  82. 82. 86
  83. 83. In no order… Issues Android Consistency Over Hype Bring on the trough! Bad Behaviour Just because you can - doesn’t mean you should! Backlash Privacy, Nordstrom, NSA, “black” phones… Scaling Power, management, control, refresh, firmware,… 1 2 3 4 5
  84. 84. Not only about these… Bluetooth Low Energy Device Battery powered, mains powered, solar powered, passive powered Transmits a message in an agreed way All iOS and all new Android devices can “see” this message (Standalone Beacons) Range: 10M / 30 feet on average
  85. 85. Embedded use of Beacons will likely drive the real long term volume in deployments But very much also about these… Lights Sockets Wearables Locks
  86. 86. 90 Deployment Considerations Proximity Location Nearness Accurate Position Easy Setup Complex All Devices Some / future No infrastructure Installation req’d Background alerts App front / b/ground “App free” App Required
  87. 87. Embedded Volume beacon shipments match standalone volume by end 2015 Successful deployments outside retail: events, gigs, conferences, real estate, tourism Enterprise use cases start to emerge: meeting rooms, staff location, building security Privacy policy becomes a key differentiator for suppliers Do not track (DNT) equivalent policies become formalised for Beacon use cases More M&A in the Beacosystem More options emerge for App-free experiences (Retailers crying out for browser solution) Many poor consumer experiences launched - mostly in retail context (pestering, spam) Some expectations for 2015 and beyond
