IBEACON SETS CONSUMERS’ PHONES TO STUN
recode.net – Few technologies have so quickly captured businesses’ imaginations as iBeacon has. In just a few months, it has gone from an unaddressed bullet in Apple’s WWDC keynote to garnering wide industry support this fall as an available technology in iOS 7. Now, a handful of months later, iBeacon is playing in the big leagues.
An beacon is a small, wireless device. When placed in a physical space, it broadcasts tiny radio signals to smart devices.
Think about it as a very small lighthouse. Smartphones that are in range are able to ‘hear’ these signals and estimate their location very precisely.
Among other brands from Gimbal to Roximity and self designed beacons, codeparc is implementing Estimote beacons.

iBeacon is an indoor positioning system that Apple Inc. calls “a new class of low-powered, low-cost transmitters that can notify nearby iOS 7 devices of their presence.”
