Bluetooth Location Sensors

Industry of Bluetooth Location Solution

Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) was introduced in 2010. It enabled developers to start using Bluetooth as a solution for different application indoor positioning, real-time locating, point of interest (PoI) information solutions, item finding solutions, and more. In the past few years, locating services have emerged as the fastest developing solution for Bluetooth. Thus, it is anticipated that by 2023, more than 400 million Bluetooth devices that support the solutions for locating services are expected to be shipped annually.

Application of Bluetooth Location Solutions

Bluetooth location services instantaneously make spaces easier to explore with indoor navigation. They establish unexpected indoor practices for different industries such as retails, transportation, health care, hospitality, corporate enterprises, and many others.

Indoor Navigation

80% of airport CIOs see indoor navigation as a major technology program by 2021

One of the primary RF standards for physical asset management is Bluetooth Low Energy. Most organizations in various industries use Bluetooth technology to track the status and live locations of their essential assets and equipment.

Asset Management

65% of enterprises will require indoor location asset tracking by 2022

You can easily find your missing item without relying on any assistance from anyone once you tag your valuable personal items with a Bluetooth tracker.

Personal Item Finding

300 million Buletooth tags are projected to ship each year by 2023

Bluetooth location services ensure that individuals in a facility are safe and secure from any harm. BLE beacons, sensors, and personal tags can be used by organizations to establish visibility to the employee’s location to control a large number of location-aware use cases.

Personnel Tracking

Workers can use a Bluetooth enabled device to easily access and securely control a restricted area in a facility. Devices fitted with the access control feature such as smartphones can be used to enhance the general security of a facility.

Access Control

Retailers can use Bluetooth location services to send promotions and discounts to their frequent customers and prospective clients. This significantly attracts more customers, thus increasing sales.

Proximity Marketing

BLE beacons are used in PoI information solutions to enhance visitors’ experience in a facility. For instance, shoppers can deploy beacons in their establishment to enable customers to attain extra information regarding a particular product easily. Also, BLE beacons can be deployed in museums to offer more details concerning exhibits to the guests visiting the facility.

Point of Interest Information

Bluetooth Technology Offers Radio Positioning Solutions

By powering rapid developments in real-time locating system (RTLS) solution shipments, Bluetooth technology plays a significant role in tracking assets and people. Also, the Bluetooth indoor positioning systems (IPS) have turned out to be the standard for indoor navigation solutions. Thus, visitors can use IPS to locate their way through complex amenities.

Bluetooth Asset Tracking is the Leading Application for Location Services

Most companies around the globe are employing Bluetooth technology in their asset tracking solutions. The implementation of Bluetooth location services uses asset tracking solutions to locate people, equipment, and materials efficiently. By 2025, it is anticipated that there will be over 516,000 implementations of Bluetooth RTLS asset tracking applications.

The new Direction Finding Feature Accelerates Bluetooth Indoor Positioning

As this new feature supports an enhanced accuracy, it is more likely that IPS solutions will significantly grow in the coming five years. It is proposed that by 2025, over 70% of Bluetooth Location Services implementations will incorporate indoor navigations.

The Rebound of Bluetooth Location Services Development

The implementations of location services were slowed down by almost 25% by the impact of COVID-19. This is because most professionals were outlawed to travel to other countries as one of the strategies of curbing the virus from spreading. The implementations are expected to rise to over 550,000 by 2025.

Retail Use cases Contribute to the Implementation of Bluetooth Location Services

The Bluetooth technology has significantly contributed to the growth of solid implementations across different verticals. Currently, about 66% of Bluetooth location services implementations support retail use cases since the implementations of Bluetooth are anticipated to double over the next five years.

Indoor Navigation will soon outperform the Deployment of other Location Services

From asset tracking to proximity services, location services support various use cases. The most common use case for the deployment of location services is indoor navigation. Nearly 80% of all implementations of Bluetooth Location Services incorporate indoor navigation.

Most Location Service Devices Shipped in 2021 has Bluetooth Tracking Tags

In location services solutions, tags are essential. Tags enable industrial, consumer, and commercial industries to easily track their workforce, materials, and vehicles. Close to 40% of Bluetooth tags currently support manufacturing and logistics. Over 136 MILLION Bluetooth personal trackers and RTLS tags were shipped in 2021.

How Bluetooth location Services Work

Bluetooth Low Energy indoor positioning solutions use sensors or beacons enabled to sense and trace the position of the broadcasting Bluetooth devices, for instance, smartphones or tracking tags in interior spaces. Location data sent to mobile devices by beacons or collected by the sensors is later taken in by different locating applications. It is then interpreted into insights that power the various location-aware applications.

Sensor BLE Positioning
Sensors enabled with BLE are used in Bluetooth positioning, where they are deployed in set positions all over an indoor space. Based on the strength of a signal received in a transmitting device, these BLE-enabled sensors inactively senses and locates transmissions from BLE beacons, smartphones, wearable, asset tracking tags, workforce badges, and other Bluetooth gadgets.
Once the location data is collected, it is later sent to a real-time location system (RTLS) or the iBeacon indoor positioning system. A location engine analyses the location data that establishes the transmitting device’s location using multi-laceration algorithms. Those set coordinates can be used to visualize the location of an asset or device.

Beacons BLE Positioning
Bluetooth Low Energy signals are constantly pulsed out by BLE beacons. The surrounding devices, i.e. BLE-enabled sensors or smartphones, receive these signals. When BLE-beacons are set up in predetermined positions all over interior space, the signal constantly transmitted by each beacon has a unique identifier. Depending on the used communication protocol, the beacon periodically sends the unique identifier code together with other data.
When in the beacon’s range, the device set with pre-configured services or installed with a dedicated application uses a user-centric approach to collect and examine the signal from the beacon or a server-centric approach to send the collected data to a server. Proximity-based location services that establish if the beacon and device are in close ranges are determined by detecting the device and one beacon.
When many beacons are strategically sited all over interior space, the device can be positioned through RSSI multi-lateration by the communication between a wireless device and more than three beacons. The device’s determined location can activate a particular action or be leveraged for various applications based on the application. Moreover, when Bluetooth is fixed on valuable items, it plays a significant role in indoor location tracking using Bluetooth proximity beacons.
