iBeacon

Indoor location detection for mobile apps

What are iBeacons?

‘iBeacons’ (or just ‘beacons’) are small Bluetooth powered devices that communicate with iPhones, iPads and the latest Android devices giving apps the ability to sense their surroundings at a much finer level of detail than was previously possible.

Real world context


Mobile apps can sense how far they are from one or more of these beacons, giving them the ability to detect their location in an indoor environment - something not possible with GPS. Additionally, applications can ask to be alerted when a user comes into range of a certain beacon, opening up a world of possibilities for apps that react to their environment, and even environments that react to apps.
