Bluetooth AOA/AOD positioning technology is a direction-finding feature added on the basis of Bluetooth in early 2019. Its advent has promoted new upgrades of widely-recognized Bluetooth in the aspect of high-precision positioning, upgrading meter-level positioning precision based on signal strength to centimeter-level in one fell swoop. Then, which industries can Bluetooth AOA/AOD location technology be applied to? What changes have been brought to these industries?
1. Intelligent Manufacturing
In a wide variety of intelligent manufacturing fields, such as automobile assembly and manufacturing, and electronics manufacturing, Bluetooth AOA high-precision positioning technology is used to realize personnel management, materials positioning and tracking, production process tracing, adapter tools searching, error proofing, etc.
2. Warehousing and Logistics
Bluetooth high-precision positioning technology is combined with RFID technology, barcodes, and QR codes to improve warehousing order and material flow efficiency, including personnel management, vehicle and equipment scheduling, dynamic cargo management, carrier management, and collaborative AGV automation.
3. Electricity and Energy
Based on the real-time collection of positioning data, intelligent management of personnel positions, attendance, roll call, statistics, and scheduling has been realized. Permissions for entering and exiting an area are separately set for staff and electronic fences are set up to prevent personnel from entering restricted areas by mistake to avoid safety accidents.
4. Smart Retail
Location information is leveraged to improve the consumer shopping experience and product push, and location data is used to optimize operations.
1. Transportation Hubs
Navigation and route plans are provided for users at airports, parking lots, transportation hubs, and other places to scientifically guide the separation of pedestrians from vehicles to guarantee operation safety and improve operational efficiency.
Management of mobile nursing rounds and hand hygiene compliance on the medical staff, efficient tracking, deployment, and utilization of life-saving supplies, positioning, tracking and timely care of special populations, identification of newborn infants, and anti-theft are achieved.
3. Exhibition & Events
Intelligent navigation and exhibition review services are realized in convention centers, museums, and other places, which can guide visitors to the booth they want in real-time, and can also achieve accurate statistics on the location of visitors to check the trajectories, stay time, etc. of exhibitors and staff in the exhibition hall to accurately analyze the exhibition effect, and allow exhibition organizers to understand the products that exhibitors are interested in to set a clear direction for improving the quality of exhibitions in the future.
