Abstract [en]

Bluetooth Low Energy beacons are small transmitters with long battery life that are considered appropriate for providing proximity-based services for businesses. In this work we evaluate experimentally the performance of a proximity-based indoor positioning system built with off-the-shelf beacons in a realistic environment. We demonstrate that the performance of the system depends on a number of factors, such as the displacement between the beacon and the mobile device, the positioning of the beacon as well as the presence and positioning of obstacles such as human bodies. We conclude that algorithms for improving proximity-based indoor positioning need always to be evaluated in realistic scenarios. We believe that the success of commercial context-aware solutions based on BLE beacons is highly dependent on the accuracy required by each application.
