Using the Estimotes – Square One

Augmented Reality V1.1.3

In an attempt to save my project, I decided to explore the estimotes. Estimotes are essentially tiny, low power computers attached to walls or objects in the physical world. Using proximity technologies they detect human presence and behavior and trigger pre-programmed actions delivering contextual and personalized experiences.

My plan was to use their” indoor location system” in order to pin point where I will place my objects but after countless tries, I discovered that I needed 4 beacons in order to calibrate a room for their indoor tracking system.

The next step I took was to try and achieve the same functionality using Estimote stickers (similiar to estimote beacons) however even though they have the capability to track proximity they could not be used for the indoor location system.
