Indoor Proximity-based Advertising using Bluetooth Beacons

Bluetooth is a perfect alternative technology for indoor localisation and is highly accurate, cost-effective, can be installed with minimal effort, and supported by many operating systems and devices. Indoor localisation proposes an immense value proposition to retails stores. In this paper, an indoor localisation prototype is built based on Bluetooth beacons’ signals. The accuracy of the prototype is evaluated to determine its possible real-world applications, such as location-based advertisements in a shopping mall or supermarket environment.
