A while a go I started to create a first PCB design for a Bluetooth Low Energy Microcell, which should be used to setup an indoor localization system. The PCB has been manufactured in december and I assembled it during the xmas holidays.
Using the iBLE application, which is a generic BLE explorer app and still under development, I can discover the macrocells and read their RSSI. There is still some work to do in order to locate an iPhone4S indoors, but I wanted to share the progress of this project with anybody who is interested.
Here you can see the four BLE Microcells:
The microcells are battery powered and once the battery is attached to the holders, the microcells can be discovered using the BLExplr application.
Please leave me a comment if you are interested in the microcells or the project itself.
