From Proximity to
Precise Positioning

Initially known for its device communications capabilities, Bluetooth® technology is now also widely used as a device positioning technology to address the increasing demand for high accuracy indoor location services. By enabling one device to determine the presence, distance, and direction of another device, Bluetooth technology delivers flexibility unlike any other positioning radio, allowing building managers and owners to scale indoor positioning solutions to match the varying and changing needs of the building.

Key Use Cases

Developers and implementers around the world are turning to the flexibility of Bluetooth® technology to enable powerful, low-cost proximity solutions and positioning systems.


Asset Tracking
