SMARTLANDMARKS   (iBEACONS) AND BLUETOOTH  4 (BLE) TECHNOLOGY

BENEFITS

Apple and Android phones and tablets with the latest Bluetooth 4 (BLE ) technology are compatible with AWARE SmartLandmarks   (iBeacons).  The key feature of Bluetooth 4.0 is low-energy technology while also allowing for some of the tightest data encryption security available.

 

CONSIDERATIONS

Positioning accuracy is still evolving for Bluetooth 4 as well as striking the right balance for the volume of information provided along with the balance between hands-free wayfinding and direction of movement. Occasional signal flickering or delay has been experienced, while venue layout and potential obstacles for signal reception are factors.

 

CONTEXT

Dedication to cutting-edge technology is always a process of evolution and adaptation. Yet, the AWARE system is committed to being on the forefront of the latest technological advancements for the visually impaired so, as Apple founder Steve Jobs said, “Life is about creating and living experiences that are worth sharing.

It's pretty much like a sign that you can hear instead of see.
