Indoor location tracking has become a crucial aspect of many industries like smart building, warehousing & logistics, manufacturing, healthcare and retailing. However, traditional methods like GPS fall short when it comes to providing precise indoor location data. Luckily, Bluetooth Angle of Arrival (AoA) technology is here to revolutionize the game. In this blog post, we’ll explore the potential of Bluetooth AoA for seamless and accurate indoor location tracking.
How Does Bluetooth AoA Technology Work?
Bluetooth AoA technology is set to revolutionize the way we track and monitor our surroundings indoors. Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) allows for the precise location of objects with an average accuracy of 0.1 meters, making it perfect for use in confined spaces such as offices, warehouses, factories, and shops. While only a single antenna is utilized for the transmission of direction-finding signals by the AoA arrival angle, the device that is used to receive these signals is built with a number of antennas in its design. When the signal has completed its journey through, there will be a phase difference as a result of the different distances at which it is received in the array as a result of its passage. The direction of the relative signal will be determined after this step.
The Features of Bluetooth AoA Technology
Bluetooth AoA technology has several key benefits over other traditional tracking methods. First, it is precise enough to locate persons or small objects inside buildings, which makes it an ideal solution for applications such as healthcare or security surveillance. Second, Bluetooth AoA transmissions are low-power and therefore do not require any additional hardware or infrastructure, making it a suitable solution for locations where high accuracy and low overhead are critical. Finally, Bluetooth AoA technology is compatible with many existing devices and applications, making it easy to deploy and integrate into existing systems.
What are the Uses of Bluetooth AoA for Location Tracking?
Bluetooth AoA technology is being used more and more in various industries, such as retail and supply chain management. It has the potential to be extremely accurate in tracking objects within a closed space, like a store or warehouse. For example, it could be used to monitor shipping containers as they move between warehouses.
Bluetooth AoA is a powerful technology that has the potential to revolutionize indoor location tracking. By using Bluetooth AoA, businesses can track employees and assets with pinpoint accuracy indoors, without needing any additional hardware or sensors.
