Bluetooth® LE Audio and Auracast Going Mainstream Will Redefine Wireless Audio

Three-and-a-half years on from the Bluetooth Special Interest Group’s (SIG) announcement of a new specification that defined a high quality, low-power audio codec (Low Complexity Communications Codec or LC3) that promised to redefine audio streaming and wireless sound, Bluetooth LE Audio (LE Audio) is finally about to hit the commercial mainstream.

Navigating Tomorrow: RTLS Trends and Projections for 2024

Looking back at the rise of location technology throughout 2023, it’s evident that the spotlight on Real-Time Locating Systems (RTLS) will only intensify. With numerous companies exploring both the benefits of tracking assets and analyzing their movements within and across different environments, the stage is set for a continued evolution of location-based services (LBS).

High-Accuracy Low-Power Secure Ranging using Bluetooth® Channel Sounding

Many applications use Bluetooth-based ranging and localization using received signal strength indication (RSSI), including access control in vehicles and buildings, asset tracking, indoor navigation, and proximity services. Ranging determines the distance from one location to another and it is possible to localize a Bluetooth® device with distance measurement from multiple Bluetooth devices in known fixed […]
