Why don't we just use WiFi?

The advantages of Bluetooth for Wayfinding

Location Accuracy

Bluetooth beacons are specifically designed for indoor positioning and provide more accurate location results than WiFi

 

Supports User Privacy

Bluetooth users must ‘allow’ detection and ‘opt-in’ for notifications, whereas WiFi needs no permission to track and send notifications

 

Low Deployment Costs

The per unit price of Bluetooth beacons is a fraction of the cost of WiFi routers

 

Low Power Consumption

Bluetooth uses less than 3% of the device battery power required by WiFi for same task

 

 

Easy Setup

Bluetooth is designed for portable equipment and requires minimal configuration compared to WiFi

 

Limited Interference

Bluetooth uses weak signals meaning that devices can communicate in ‘noisy’ environments (e.g. hospitals) without the connection errors experienced with WiFi

 

Device Compatability

Bluetooth is compatable with more devices than WiFi
