RTLS Locating Using Mesh

You-Wei Lin and Chi-Yi Lin of Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering, Tamkang University, New Taipei City 25137, Taiwan have a paper An Interactive Real-Time Locating System Based on Bluetooth Low-Energy Beacon Network.

Although the implementation is similar to SensorMesh™ and BeaconRTLS™ used together, their solution uses a proprietary mesh implementation and a proprietary data protocol. Consequently, their implementation suffers longer response time when used over longer physical distances. Their maximum inter-hop distance of 8 to 10 m also isn’t good due to non-optimal devices and non-optimal device positioning.
