Accuware Bluetooth Beacon Tracker

Locate and track the movement of Bluetooth beacon devices in real time

Bluetooth Beacon Tracker is a real-time locating system (RTLS) that locates and tracks the movement of active Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) devices. The system works inside multi-story buildings or throughout an entire campus. Its ability to track the whereabouts of Bluetooth devices publishing their presence (that is, beaconing) enables people and asset tracking applications to monitor movements within a physical space. Key differentiating features of this system are the devices' small form factor, their low price, and their extended battery life.
How it can be used

Sample applications

iBeacon device

iBeacons-compliant Bluetooth Low Energy device
Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) devices compliant with the iBeacon protocol can be located and tracked by iBeacons Tracker
Hardware

Bluetooth Node

Detecting active iBeacon-compliant devices
BLE Nodes collect data for iBeacon Location Monitor. Deployed through a monitored site, BLE Nodes detect active iBeacon devices, collecting their identifiers. A device must be detected by three or more BLE Nodes for its location to be estimated. Otherwise, only its presence is known.
