Motion aware thin Bluetooth® LE beacon solution for smart labels

A beacon is a tiny Bluetooth radio battery powered transmitter. Its functionally resembles a lighthouse that can be seen by everyone within a certain range. Beacons provide an inexpensive broadcasting solution capable of autonomous operation over very long periods of time.

 

In this paper, we will show how beacons can support extended functionality by employing a range of peripherals to allow them to process and display data while maintaining autonomous operation.
