Initial situation and project objective
In future, the integration of “beacons” will transform lighting installations into position senders and receivers within buildings. Doing so enables the implementation of innovative location-based services. The radio signal emitted by each beacon carries a unique identification number. Smart devices are therefore able to recognize objects and places to which this kind of beacon is fitted. Services like this can be used in many areas, extending from retail and parking garages to logistics applications. OSRAM sees huge market potential here, not least due to the wide range of potential applications.
