Not only does a WiBeacon infrastructure enable accurate location information, the sensors can be powered over USB or PoE so no swapping out batteries.
WiBeacon improves zone-based location measurement over WiFi dramatically. In a retail setting this could mean the
difference between pinpointing a whole aisle, or identifying all the individual products on that aisle.
Depending on the type of deployment, WiFi tracking
accuracy can be improved from 7-10 metres to within 2-3 metres.
This makes WiBeacon a viable alternative to Bluetooth
technology, whilst still being cost-effective with a large numbers of sensors.
