Abtech Systems are proud to present a Location-Based Service (LBS) Application
“Beacons” for your Business
“Beacons”, stationary or mobile, on a person or item, broadcasts a tiny data packet using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). A vast array of data packets broadcasted can include; micro-position, URL or code, simple home task reminders, temperature, asset tracking, MFG production tracking, new product marketing, retail shelf labeling, to name but a few. Applications are truly endless, currently limited only to the 2.4GHz Bluetooth Smart band limitations.
Location Beacon; 70 meter range, 7 year battery
Proximity Beacon; 70 meter range, 2 year battery
Sticker Beacon; 15 meter range, 1 year battery
- Beacons do not broadcast continuously they “blink” giving them long battery life
- Mobile devices (iOS, Android, WIN phone, etc.) utilizing their Application Programming Interfaces (API’s) detect (fetch) the signal and act based on designated service rules.
- NO Spam, Email, or Personal Data is recorded or transmitted directly between Beacons and mobile devices.
- GPS (Global Positioning System), ideal for outdoors, Transmits stored information.
- Wi-Fi (catchier than IEEE 802.11x, Wi-Fi aware), which uses Radio Frequency (RF), commonly used to overcome GPS limitations indoors, Transmits stored information.
- RFID (Radio-Frequency Identification) Passive or active, Transmits stored information.
- The following is just a small sampling of the industries (from ballparks to car lots, museums to grocery stores, product shipments to inventory) that expect 400 Million Beacon shipments by 2020.
