Indoor positioning of a moving iBeacon, using trilateration and three ESP32 development modules.
ESP32 modules report all beacons they see, to MQTT topic.
Dashboard subscribes to this topic, and shows the location of beacons which are seen by all three stations.
The “Computex Taipei” APP launched by TAITRA used SAILStech positioning and navigation engine which seamlessly combined Apple’s latest micro-locating iBeacon technology and mobile phones integrated accelerometers, gyroscopes and electronic compass to precisely calculate users position (accuracy of less than two meters) in the exhibition hall. It must have been a long haul for TAITRA to launch an APP with the latest iBeacon technology, which is only introduced to market within a year. Except for global visitors and buyers will be able to find booths more efficiently, in the future, personal service can be added within the APP to make it possible to automatically obtain or exchange booths DM and cards which can help cut paper usage and contibute to energy saving and environment protection. TAITRA has started exhibition indoor positioning reign from Computex 2014 exhibition; more and more exhibitions will provide position-related APP in the future to offer visitors a more convenient service. Application fields are also numberless, such as galleries, museums , government agencies , libraries, hospitals, airports , train stations, transit , transfer stations , theme parks , shopping malls , community, parking lot .. etc.
www.zrooh.com indoor-navigation system uses Bluetooth-beacons to determine the location of a smartphone. These standalone devices are based on iBeacon technology, they powered by batteries or USB and periodically emit a radio signal. User’s smartphone receives these signals, measures power and calculates the coordinates. The found location is shown on the map on smartphone or used to generate notifications.
Mexia Interactive demonstrates indoor positioning of a mobile device within a building. Using our leading M-Sensor that includes a USB powered iBeacon/BLE module with an external antenna, we are able to accurately position a device inside any building and have onboard sensors move the ‘blue dot’ along with the user.
Mexia can provide Developers with a complete SDK (iOS as of June2014. Android SDK ready Aug14) to integrate this technology into any indoor mapping or wayfinding component for an App.
Additional functionality of the Mexia M-Sensor include Enterprise level WiFi, iBeacon/BLE mobile engagement and best-in-class anonymous mobile location analytics. We also provide complete CMS (content management system) SDK’s for iOS and Android for iBeacon/BLE that provides proximity notifications, social connectivity, geo-fencing and a secure 3 token mobile payment module.
