Bluetooth has emerged as a money saver for many organizations.
Bluetooth’s short range makes it ideal for office situations with several enabled devices in close proximity, and the technology can also be used to transfer files from computers to mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones to transport information out of the office.
Bluetooth is especially making its mark in retail. Speed, agility and efficiency are what retailers look for. Thanks to Bluetooth technology, advanced tools are evolving day by day to support retail businesses.
Bluetooth doesn’t simply reduce your expenses and improve your planning, more than that, it provides organizations with a competitive edge to thrive and grow in the market.
And Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) technologies continue to expand use cases year after year such as enabling new IoT use cases, opening a wide range of applications that promise significant and sustainable growth.
Sector analysts believe 2023 will be no exception to Bluetooth’s amazing evolution. For example, Bluetooth technology is powering rapid growth in real-time locating system (RTLS) solutions. These solutions are capable of helping locate tools and workers in a warehouse or medical devices and patients in a smart hospital.
With a predicted 516,000 implementations of Bluetooth RTLS asset tracking use cases by 2025, asset tracking is becoming more refined and accurate. Emerging technologies like Angle of Arrival (AoA) and Angle of Departure (AoD) leverage antenna arrays to triangulate more accurate positioning, while High-Accuracy Distance Measurement (HADM) offers accuracy down to the centimeter.
Indoor navigation and wayfinding are also Bluetooth trends to watch for in 2023. From airports and train stations to museums and hospitals, Bluetooth indoor positioning systems (IPS) have quickly become the standard for overcoming the indoor coverage challenges of GPS, helping visitors navigate their ways through complex facilities.
Experts in this area report that 77% of Bluetooth location services implementations include indoor navigation. Whether it’s Bluetooth RSSI radio networks, AoD beacons, or even Bluetooth capabilities built into Wi-Fi or wireless lighting systems, consumers and organizations can more easily navigate complex facilities simply by utilizing their smart devices.
