Future beacon technology

It’s just possible there will be prizes too!
The Physical Web is Google’s flagship Internet of Things (“IoT”) project , whose aim is to make it possible for people to simply “walk up and use anything”.

Bluetooth Eddystone beacons are central to the Physical Web and ABI Research forecast that by 2020, over 500 million Bluetooth beacons will be shipping *per year*.

Bluetooth 5 was just released and includes advances which pave the way for the next generation of beacon technology.

Android developers have an enormous opportunity to create IoT solutions which leverage this trend towards Bluetooth connectionless, proximity-based scenarios. From parking metres, to art galleries and museums. From retail outlets, to airports and emergency services, Bluetooth beacons and the physical web will be everywhere in the not too distant future.

Attend this session to learn how beacons work, what makes Eddystone special, what a Physical Web architecture might look like and to gain some insight into “real world” issues that developers can face. There will be demos and you’ll learn some tricks of the trade such as how to make your own beacons.

Bluetooth beacons are an essential ingredient in the IoT and every developer who is interested in carving a path in the world of IoT for themselves should know about them.

Come to this session and you’ll be set on the right path for IoT success.
