Description:
In early 2013, Apple was silently installing and testing a new technology called iBeacons at a number of Major League Baseball Ballparks in the United States. It was reported that with iBeacons, one could pinpoint a location to with-in 3.5 inches and perhaps more in some circumstances. iBeacon is not the only Bluetooth Smart proximity device for retailers. Qualcomm's Gimbal Proximity Sensor is also available, supporting iOS today and Android in the future. What can be do with iBeacons? Localization? Navigation? Information provision for both customers and retailers? There are much unknown waiting for the explorers.
