How to use iBeacons for asset tracking for mobile equipment within premises for real time monitoring.
Advent of iBeacon tags and devices has given businesses an innovative way to track assets as well as Personnel, both outdoor as well as within indoor premises. iBeacon technology gives unprecedented accuracy in terms of indoor tracking.
Business usage of iBeacon asset tracking may vary from business to business. We will start with asset proximity detection in this blog posts and will cover other use cases for businesses in upcoming blog posts.
Asset proximity detection is useful in case where for example you have a large warehouse and there are lot of products stacked in the same. Finding any specific box or product becomes quite hectic in such cases.
In this case, you tag each box or product with an iBeacon tag. Your supervisor can have a mobile app which can be programmed to send alert when you are in proximity of the required box or product. In this mobile device basically scans all iBeacon tags available in proximity and based on your requirement alerts you when the required box is found.
Alerts and notification can be triggered based on your business requirements.
