Blecon's Bluetooth LE Solution: Transforming IoT with Efficient RTLS and Asset Tracking

Bluetooth technology is gaining traction in IoT applications, as evidenced by Blecon‘s launch of their Bluetooth LE (Low Energy) solution at Hardware Pioneers in London. Blecon aims to expand Bluetooth use cases and assist businesses in overcoming challenges related to this technology. Co-Founder Simon Ford highlighted Bluetooth LE’s global recognition and untapped potential in an interview with IoT Insider.

Blecon’s solution addresses integration difficulties businesses face with Bluetooth LE in IoT connectivity, aiming to democratize its use. Bluetooth LE’s low power consumption makes it ideal for battery-powered sensors in applications like climate monitoring, where battery replacement is costly and time-consuming. According to a white paper by Infineon and ABI Research, Bluetooth is poised to meet professional environment challenges, with a projected growth rate of 34% between 2023 and 2028.

The IoT landscape supports various technologies, including Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and Ultra-wideband (UWB), each playing a role in business applications. Bluetooth’s advantages include resilience to interference, low power consumption, and widespread availability of low-cost chipsets and modules.

Promising applications for Bluetooth include human-machine interfaces (HMIs) and, notably, real-time location systems (RTLS) and asset tracking, due to their low cost and high accuracy. RTLS solutions are expected to exceed 322 million annual shipments by 2028, with business building automation as the second-largest segment.

Transforming IoT Applications with RTLS and Asset Tracking

An ongoing trend has been made toward embracing Bluetooth as a technology capable of transforming IoT applications was demonstrated by the unveiling of Blecon’s Bluetooth Low Energy ( LE ) solution at Hardware Pioneers last month in London. One of Blecon’s goals is to increase the use cases that use Bluetooth and assist businesses in overcoming obstacles faced in embracing this technology.

In an exclusive approaching interview with IoT Insider at Hardware Pioneers, Simon Ford, Co- Founder of Blecon discussed the “amazing opportunity” presented by Bluetooth LE as a technology” that is known worldwide. People are already discovering some of the capabilities that they perhaps did n’t understand before”, he explained.

The company stated in a press release that the solution was being developed in response to the difficulties that businesses had when trying to integrate Bluetooth LE into their IoT connectivity applications, and that it is looking to democratize Bluetooth LE.

Because Bluetooth LE uses less power, it is also suited for applications where battery-powered sensors used for climate monitoring, where normal battery replacement proves time-consuming and expensive.

According to a recent white paper released by Infineon and ABI Research, Bluetooth is a technology at the forefront of addressing the challenges and requirements of operating in professional environments. The opportunity for Bluetooth is growing, with an expected growth rate of 34 % between 2023 and 2028.

Bluetooth LE: Revolutionizing IoT Applications in RTLS and Asset Tracking

According to the light paper’s introduction, the growing pressures and challenges facing technological companies, including the effects of lockdowns and the war in Ukraine, have prompted companies to invest in digitalization, which is seen as a way to improve supply chains, labor resources, and yields.

No one technology is ideal for everyone because of the variety of technologies and applications that the Internet of Things can support, such as those for robotics, wearables, and electric vehicle ( EV ) chargers. A combination of technologies spanning Bluetooth, Wi- Fi and Ultra- wide ( UWB ) will play a creative role in transforming business applications.

Bluetooth’s certain advantages in commercial applications include its resilience to interference, extremely- lower power consumption through Bluetooth Low Energy ( LE), wide availability of low- cost chipsets and modules, ubiquitous presence in mobile and laptop devices, and more

The most promising area of application for industrial sensors is human-machine interfaces ( HMIs ), to name a few, but the most promising one right now is RTLS and asset tracking, according to the white paper, because of its low cost and high accuracy. By 2028, RTLS solutions ‘ yearly shipments are anticipated to exceed 322 million in annual shipments. The business building automation market is the second-largest market.
