What is Bluetooth BLE technology?

A beacon is a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacon, just a few centimeters square, capable of sending radio waves at regular intervals up to several dozen meters. As with RFID, these radio waves transmit information that is picked up by other devices using Bluetooth connectivity. This technology is particularly well suited to asset tracking applications, with the aim of obtaining geolocation to within a few square meters of a predefined area (room, warehouse, campus, etc.).

A beacon is made up of several components: a battery, a microcontroller, an antenna, a radio module, sensors and, finally, a UUID (Universal Unique Identifier). As the frequency band used by Bluetooth technology is similar to that of WiFi, 2.4 GHz, the infrastructure to be considered for real-time real-time geolocation of its assets (products, stock, machines, etc.) is inexpensive and technically straightforward.

The complementarity between passive RFID and Bluetooth BLE opens up an almost unlimited field of possibilities within all industries in terms of traceability. Our Solid consultants are at your disposal to accompany you in your reflections and your future projects.
