Bluetooth Low Energy: Simple Low-Cost RTLS Replacement or Complex Problem?

Breakout Session
With the ratification of the current Bluetooth Low Energy standards back in 2010, a rapidly expanding number of BLE components (tags and transceivers) have been released for use with microprocessors, such as Arduino and Raspberry Pi. The presenter of this session will discuss lessons learned, false starts and observations from the attempts at using low-cost BLE hardware. Gain an understanding of the advantages of BLE, the various pieces of hardware encountered, and what ultimately worked and failed.
