Beacon technology has emerged as the most innovative one in the recent past. The pebble shaped small devices emits a Bluetooth signal and can be connected to your smartphone through beacon apps. The Bluetooth signal emitted by beacon can send important information which is pre-loaded in it. It can be used at a retail store, at a particular product section to display the product rate right on your smartphone.

The way the retailers and transportation hubs have used them speaks all about the uniqueness of beacons.

iBeacons to Guide the Blind

The enhancement in this technology has proved to be vital for many businesses and individuals all over the world. Recently, the London Subway was tested with some beacons to navigate the blind through an audio. Instead of displaying the information of the streets, the beacon will help the smartphone users (blind) to listen the audio that navigates them to the underground tunnels. The tunnels located at railway stations make it difficult for the blind people to navigate. And when there is a crowd, it makes it even worse for them to walk in the subterranean. Thanks to the improvisation in the beacon technology done by the experts, the navigation has become like a walk in the park.

If you too, want to implement something new with the help of beacons or beacon apps, you can hire the unique beacon app development services from us right away!
