Using indoor location technology to create an interactive experience for users through a mobile application

Stuart M Jones


Supervised by Chris B Jones; Moderated by Omer F Rana

Investigate different indoor technologies. - GPS, Wi-Fi, NFC, iBeacons, RFID tags etc.

Explain why I have chosen iBeacons.

Create a HTML5 mobile application using Cordova to interact with the iBeacons. - Primarily iOS and Android

When the user enters a specific range of the iBeacons and other conditions are met, the mobile app will deliver content to the users. - e.g. a user enters a 1 meter radius of a iBeacon which is positioned next to a painting in a museum. It could deliver information about the painting such as when it was painted, by who etc.

There will be analytics to track the users. - e.g. how long they spent at each beacon, the order they visited beacons etc.
