BLE Beacon Positioning System

Hosiden has released its “BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) Beacon Positioning System” which now gives location information as part of a “visualization of positioning information” by analyzing the locations of personnel, such as staff in offices or factories as a first phase of an IoT (Internet of Things) Cloud Service.
It is a system that calculates wave intensity information received from the BLE beacon as sent to the cloud server, so enabling positioning information to be accessible from within a web application. This technology is helpful when improving the operations and work efficiency in offices or factories, as well as monitoring the locations of children or elderly people.
Based on this system, Hosiden further aims to develop value-added services including monitoring of vital signs using wearable devices currently under development.
