How does Bluetooth AoA Positioning Technology Apply in the Industry?

By Blueiot

Bluetooth AoA/AoD positioning technology is a direction-finding feature added on the basis of Bluetooth in early 2019.

Based on the latest BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) Bluetooth 5.1 Technology, Blueiot applies the Angle of Arrival – Bluetooth AoA positioning algorithm to reach the unique direction of the incoming signals and position of the tag, which can reach 0.1 meter accuracy and improve the accuracy of traditional low-precision Bluetooth by 10 times.

So, which industries can benefit from Bluetooth AoA/AoD location technology? What changes have been made to these industries?

Ⅰ. Enterprise Service

1. Intelligent Manufacturing

Bluetooth AoA high-precision positioning technology is used in a wide range of intelligent manufacturing fields, including automobile assembly, manufacturing and electronics manufacturing to realize personnel management, materials positioning and tracking, production process tracing, adapter tool searching, error proofing, and so on.

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

Intelligent administration of personnel positions, attendance, roll call, statistics, and scheduling has been realized based on Bluetooth AoA technology of real-time positional data collecting.

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, that is to say location data is used to optimize operations.

II. Public Services

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.

2. Healthcare

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, and so on, 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.
