Bluetooth beacons and the web
One of our staff members, Attila Tóth, is currently working on multiple projects for INNObyte Informatikai Zrt. He’s a specialist in Bluetooth Low Energy beacon technology and his thesis dealt with the same topic, which also happens to be an area that INNObyte plans to focus on in the near future. Why is this field gaining in importance, and what opportunities does it create for clients? Attila addresses these questions in the post below.
- A piece of hardware which broadcasts Bluetooth data packets.
- Another piece of hardware which receives and processes signals.
- An application which supplies relevant information to the user based on the signal received.
How beacons can be used
Even on the web?
Although web technology offers more and more opportunities, there will always be operational limitations due to its ease of access. The majority of web APIs can only be used when the browser page is active and will never be suitable for implementing a device similar to Apple’s AirTag.
