This year, the Bluetooth® community made major strides in wireless innovation. Around the world, community members worked diligently with global partners to publish comprehensive case studies that validate the reliability, flexibility, and scalability of Bluetooth technology across a wide range of platforms and infrastructures. From real-time asset tracking to networked lighting control, Bluetooth technology is being used to support sustainable solutions that enhance operational efficiency and reduce operational costs.
Here is a look back at some of the top Bluetooth SIG member case studies of 2022.
Achieving the Best Wireless Performance and Connectivity for Large-Scale Industrial IoT Solutions In Hazardous Area Environments
Cassia Networks partners with Extronics to deliver a flexible wireless solution that deploys at scale to support optimal, cost-effective performance. The combination of Cassia’s long-range Bluetooth® capabilities and Extronics’ pre-certified wireless enclosure helps ensure customers can connect multiple wireless sensors and/or tags for various IoT use cases, such as condition monitoring and personnel and asset tracking applications.
Greening Spring House Innovation Park With Flexible Outdoor Bluetooth Mesh Control
With 11 parking lots, dozens of walking paths, and a central courtyard space, the Spring House Innovation Park (SHIP) campus needed a robust control network with maximum flexibility. To support these goals, McWong partnered with Luminosity Lighting to deliver a flexible, Bluetooth® mesh outdoor lighting control network throughout SHIP’s 133-acre campus.
Innovative Collaboration Results in Mobile Access for Guests
Mobile access is an innovation that is shaping the future of the hotel industry. To implement the smartphone-based solution, Swiss-based dormakaba partnered with LEGIC and Village Hotel to implement a fully integrated mobile access solution. Based on embedded LEGIC security technology, dormakaba locks implement Bluetooth® Low Energy to deliver a seamless, reliable and highly secure guest experience.
Farm to Store with Israel’s Largest Retailer, Shufersal
To meet its commitments of fresh produce for customers, competitive pricing, and sustainable operations for the planet, Shufersal worked with Wiliot to create the world’s first intelligent farm-to-store supply chain. Wiliot’s self-powered, stamp-sized IoT Pixels and cloud-based analytics engine enable a universal IoT.
Tapkey Enables Mobile Access
Key-based locking systems are going out of fashion, especially for shared vehicles, hotel rooms, or rented offices. Handing over the key requires a face-to-face meeting or shipping. Things can be done more efficiently and quickly with a cloud-based platform. Owners and service providers can use it remotely to issue, revoke, or set time limits for authorizations. And the user then simply opens the door: either via Bluetooth Low Energy or, in an alternative solution, via NFC.
North Bakersfield Toyota Case Study
This video case study from North Bakersfield Toyota car dealership outlines a retrofit project for indoor and outdoor lighting using Linmore LED Ultralink wireless lighting control solution with Silvair technology inside.
Smart Lighting and Controls Halve Energy Consumption at Campus Pitzemburg
With targets in place to reduce the CO2 emissions, maximize savings, and minimize disruption, Campus Pitzemburg turned to Sylvania RANA LED luminaires to upgrade the lighting throughout the school. Thanks to Bluetooth® controlled, energy-efficient LED luminaires, Campus Pitzemburg cut its energy usage by 50 percent.
Sylvania Lets Efficiency and Control Fly High at FLYINGGROUP Antwerp
Using energy-efficient Officelyte luminaires with SylSmart integrated wireless controls, Sylvania helped lower FLYINGGROUP’s energy consumption by 48 percent. Integrated with Bluetooth® technology, the luminaires provided an easy and flexible lighting solution. The switches could be easily added anywhere in the room and required no new wiring, giving the customer a fully controllable, energy-efficient solution with minimal disruption.
Galleria Borghese, Rome Case Study
To optimize visitor flow and improve the customer experience, while not disrupting museum activity, the Galleria Borghese Museum deployed a Bluetooth® enabled solution that made it possible to observe the behavior of museum visitors in real time.
Bringing Wireless Controls to the Epicenter of Connectivity
LSI Industries, in collaboration with Design Inc., installed a complete, easily configurable lighting retrofit in the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) headquarters. For this project, 170 Bluetooth® mesh devices were deployed over 15,700 square feet to support 96 desks, 14 private offices, and a number of conference rooms and collaborative workspaces, allowing Bluetooth SIG staff to adjust the settings to their individual preferences.
