Bluetooth Promises Location-Tracking Lights

Bluetooth has announced a direction-finding feature that means Bluetooth-enabled lights could be used for way finding, location tracking and proximity services. The feature allows devices to determine the direction of a Bluetooth signal, thereby enabling the development of so-called ‘proximity applications’ such as asset tracking.  The launch of Bluetooth location-tracking will rival Philip’s YellowDot program which allows certified LED luminaires containing YellowDot drivers to be interoperable with Philips’ indoor positioning technology. With two major players with proximity technology, it could have the positive effect of driving the concept in the lighting sector.  Bluetooth location services solutions generally fall into two categories; proximity solutions and positioning systems.
