  • In this paper, we propose a different kind of Beacon signals transmission and receipt scheme to express more information in existing iBeacon. Because the user can only use Major and Minor of iBeacon, information available for the user is limited to 4byte. The proposed scheme makes it possible to use more information by transmitting consecutively a different kind of Beacon signals that major and minor are different. When it comes to using more information of iBeacon, it is possible to recognize people and objects using iBeacon and utilization range of iBeacon is widened further. Also, we verify operation of the proposed scheme through application implementation.

  • The interconnectedness of all things is continuously expanding. For example, bluetooth low energy (BLE) beacons are wireless radio transmitters that can send an identifier to nearby receivers and trigger a number of applications, from proximity marketing to indoor location-based service. iBeacon technology which is one of the newest technologies in the smart tourism field, is reckoned as being very useful for travelers in enhancing the experience with visiting places. However, there is consequently not much existing research yet about the connection between iBeacon technology and tourism destination. Considering that, this study analyzes the adoption of iBeacon in tourism destination, this study examine the interrelationships and feedback structures of key factors in iBeacon adoption. To serve the purpose, this study used system dynamics approach to develop a model of iBeacon adoption in tourism destination. The analysis results showed that the concept of 'Social Influences' is one of the significant predictors for individual's intention behavior to accept iBeacon, and word of mouth (WOM), subjective norm, privacy concern, and perceived usefulness are key factors influencing the iBeacon adoption.

  • In this paper, by utilizing the iBeacon is BLE (BlueTooth Low Energy) protocol devices that are supported by over the Bluetooth 4.0, and have implemented a system to improve the accuracy in the system for measuring the position of the user. After measuring through the system according to the state of the iBeacon, the interference factors are analyzed through analysis of the collected data, and applying the extended Kalman filter for calibration. Compared with the data after applying a filter with existing data, it was confirmed an increase in accuracy. Improvement techniques for providing the less complexity to the actual implementation, is effective in improving the accuracy of vulnerable services basic iBeacon.

  • Recently location based services is being expanded into the indoor service that can not access to the outdoor location informations, such as GPS. Thus, the research and development of an indoor positioning system with BLE(Bluetooth Low Energy) iBeacon technology has expanded. However, RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indicator) that is used as the distance information between the terminal and for positioning iBeacon signal has a problem in that distortion occurs, information such as the signal attenuation and the delay due to the characteristics of radio waves. In this paper, we propose a reliable method of verifying iBeacon signal with the signal distortion problems for reliable indoor positioning systems.

  • Recent with the progress of smart devices, there is an increasing demand for indoor location-based services. For this reason, research on indoor positioning system using a iBeacon techniques added to BLE(Bluetooth Low Energy) specifications of Bluetooth4.0 has been actively. However, RSSI signal used for the measurement of the distance between the iBeacon and the receiving terminal has the problems of inaccurate distance measurement to environmental factors such as obstacles. In this paper, we propose an implemented indoor positioning technique to use filtering technology enhance the reliability of the RSSI signal and the broadcasting signal of the terminal access point function.

  • Recently, there have been many research that recognize the situation using sensors. However, sensor data collection and analysis are still lacking in integration. This is because the data generated by the sensor is difficult to match in terms of metadata and units. Therefore, a methodology for efficiently using data generated from various sensors is needed. In this paper, we propose a system that recognizes the location through information generated from a moving iBeacon. This system constructs the ontology with the data that can recognize the exact position when the patient wearing iBeacon moves in the room. This maps standard items and sensor items, and stores the results of filtering the detected values as knowledge. the system can extract efficient location information by recognizing the value generated by moving the patient carrying iBeacon through the ontology. This can be applied not only to beacons but also to other sensors, and it can be applied variously according to the ontology configuration.
