Supercharging BLE Beacons with Bluetooth 5
This presentation reviews how Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) beacons are used to enable proximity-aware applications on smartphones, covering basic use cases of beacons with real-world examples, and then explains how beacons are enhanced with the latest features of Bluetooth 5 and upcoming releases. These features include secondary advertising channels, BLE coded PHYs, and Angle-of-Arrival technology. The presentation shows how these new features will enable advanced beacons with more complexity, longer range and more location precision for enhancing proximity aware applications. We explain the hardware and software components used in the construction of a beacon product and use detailed explanations of the iBeacon and Eddystone advertisement packets to show how simple BLE beacons are to implement. We will also address some of the popular hype about privacy and security surrounding Bluetooth beacons.
