Unai Platform : Indoor Localization System with Bluetooth Low Energy

About “Unai”

“Unai” platform provides online location or moving direction data of an object or person within the building. The platform contains the signal receiving device “Anchor” and transmitting device “Tag” using the small embed system and the Bluetooth Low Energy wireless communication system with Wi-Fi. This platform covers the wider-range of communication than RFID. The location data could be retrieved from the electronic plate and it could be used in varied industries. NECTEC research team has joined hands with Chinese research team from Shanghai Advanced Research Institute (SARI) of Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) since 2015 and both sides are looking for the possibilities to continue the further collaborations together.
