We have a new article on Using Beacons for Real-time Locating Systems (RTLS). It explains how beacons can be used with apps or gateways to automatically identify and track the location of objects or people. It also mentions how RTLS systems can be implemented using IoT platforms.
RTLS created with an Open Source IoT Platform
Areas where organisations have used BeaconZone beacons for RTLS include manufacture, warehousing and the tracking of equipment and people. The latter segment has included people on campus, lone workers and evidence based working (e.g. evidence based policing).
