Transcript of Using iBeacon/Estimotes

Using iBeacon/Estimotes
Real-world Location Positioning
Code Camp
What we asked for:
-Android Studio or XCode
-Compatable phone
-A worknig "Hello World" app
What are they?

A look inside
Each Estimote contains:
a powerful 32-bit ARM® Cortex M0 CPU with 256kB flash memory
temperature sensor
and what is most important – 2.4 GHz Bluetooth 4.0 Smart (also known as BLE or Bluetooth low energy) bidirectional radio.
"pre-production dev kit"
Apps that might be helpful
Also, the demo apps you can build...
Get the SDK

Build the Demo App

Start your own project
(Lets get coding!)
cd Android-SDK/Demos
./gradlew installDebug

(if error, open SDK Manager and install any missing
dependencys [Android ADK Build-tools v19.0.1])

Divide into groups

Each group should have:
Someone with a compatible phone
Someone with previous Java/objective C experience
If you have done android or iOS dev before, please don't be in the same group as each other (spread the knowledge!)
Project Ideas:
Clocking in and out
Retail / Store location
Bike lock
House lights on /off
Airport gate locations
Ordering a drink at the casino
Built into (snuck into) the Bluetooth 4.0 spec
2 second pairing!
No dongles required
Guaranteed message delivery (vs Zigbee)
Small battery plus very long life
Better distance than standard Bluetooth
Fits in the 2.4GHz sectrum
More pratical than NFC
"More important than USB"
