You kept your keys somewhere and now it appears to be nowhere, certainly not in the racket by the side of the door where they are supposed to be found, and now you are over an hour late for work! Kitchen, drawers, work bag, and wait! Finally, there it is under the courier packet that you brought in last night!

Losing things is irritating, and yet many a time we are forgetful. Phycologists say that an average person misplaces up to 9 items a day, and one-third of the respondents in a poll suggested that they spent an average of 15 minutes a day searching for items – cell phones and keys top the list, according to an online survey including 3,000 people, published by a British company.

This is where beacon-based tracking devices come in. These devices give you the easiest and most efficient way to track and locate any of your things that you have misplaced, forgot or lost. All you have to do is this- Purchase the tracker device and attach it to any of the things you don’t want to lose or misplace, but usually do. Whenever you want to locate the item, you can just ring the device from the tracker app on your phone or from the website to know where it is. In case you lose your things, the app also lets you track the location and time at which it was last found, so that you can locate and recover it easily.

So, if you are a person who routinely misplaces your things, go get a beacon tracker device now. No more digging through your bag wondering what you did with your car keys or glasses. No more tearing apart your couch wondering where the remote control is hiding.

Many of the attendees have one thing in common when they come to attend events – networking. While attendees know the importance of networking, many of them would find it difficult to determine whom they should meet and find common grounds with potential connections. The uncertainty and frustration many of your attendees feel towards networking create a huge opportunity for event planners to create extraordinary value at their events. Wearable beacon technology is the perfect tool to help your attendees create meaningful connections.

Before your event, you determine the criteria you want to use to create networking recommendations. Defined criteria can be job function, industry or department, geographical location etc. For even more specific categorization, attendees can provide more information during the event registration process. This information can be used to create additional networking criteria and a list of suitable connections for each attendee.

When your attendees arrive, they receive a lanyard with a wearable beacon device attached to it. The beacon transfers the user profile information to the event application. By combining mobile event app and wearable beacon technology, you can offer superior networking experiences to your attendees. Beacons know the attendees’ positions in relation to one another. Using that data, notifications can be pushed through the event app, to alert users when they are close to one of their matches. Event attendees don’t have to guess anymore about who to approach, and whether they are speaking to the right person. Pre-loaded profile information makes it easy for your attendees to find one another and make connections easily.

When an attendee is alerted that they are near one of their potential connections, they can use their event app to schedule a meetup. The attendee’s app shows their agenda, as well as their connection’s agenda, and displays time slots where they can schedule a meeting directly in their app. This way, in case the timing isn’t right, they can still connect later at a convenient time.

Event apps also provide event heat maps that let you know where at the event venue attendees spend most of their time. This insight can help you identify popular features exhibited and vendors, as well as improve the traffic flow of your event while preventing bottlenecks. Wearable beacons also give you a virtual view of your attendees’ movements and participation habits. Using real-time feedback, you can see trends related to popular and unpopular content real-time, make required modifications and also plan upcoming events accordingly. Rightly leveraging the benefits offered by beacon technology, you can ensure improved engagement throughout an event derive maximum business benefits from the event.

Revamping healthcare system in hospitals – IoT enabled monitoring devices

Beacon technology is positively impacting both individuals and enterprises, across diverse industries. In the healthcare space, beacon enabled devices are impacting people throughout the industry, be it patients or healthcare providers.

IoT based location tracking solutions can be harnessed for a host of functions like, keeping track of devices, assets and patients. The technology is among the most effective and efficient solutions that can be deployed in the healthcare space today for a wide variety of location-based applications.  Beacon enabled wearables have the ability to customize data according to a patient’s or healthcare provider’s current health information. Such personalisation enables direct one-to-one conversations that are highly relevant and delivered at the right time.

Beacon technology can enable patients and physicians to receive relevant information at the right moment. For example, when a patient is waiting outside the doctor’s room, the latest medical records can directly be made available in digital form, in order to discuss them with the doctor. Health monitoring wearables can automatically notify the doctor or other relevant hospital staff about the patient’s specific vital information, including pulse rate, stress level, body temperature etc, when they visit the patient. The patients admitted in the hospital can be given a beacon enabled tag. When that patient attempts to exit the room, or use the washroom, the beacon can easily alert the healthcare provider.

When a patient arrives at the emergency department, a wristband with a built-in Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacon is attached to that patient’s wrist before he/she is shifted from the vehicle carrying him. As the patient enters the facility, a receiver device mounted near the entrance of the facility receives the band’s beacon ID. That device sends the wristband’s ID through a Wi-Fi network to a cloud-based service, where the application software links the time and location with the wristband and stores that information. As the patient is taken along one of the several routes leading to multiple labs, other devices installed along the route continue to pick up the wristband ID as it comes within range, thus updating that wristband’s status to indicate in real time, how quickly it is moving from one location another.

Beacon cards can also be attached to the hospital staff’s ID cards. From a care point of view, the badge registers every time the nurse enters any patient’s room. From staffing point of view, the data can be compiled and analyzed to identify inefficiencies in the work patterns of staff.

This case study is based on the installation of AssistPlus, Pinmicro’s location and activity analysis solution in a leading hospital. The scenarios explained is only a small example of how IoT based applications are relevant in healthcare. There is a multitude of other benefits that can be offered by these IoT enabled devices in hospitals, in such a way as to increase the long-term efficiency of the healthcare system. Given the extensive possibilities offered by the technology, now is the time for healthcare providers to adapt IoT to their healthcare system.

Child safety in school buses – it’s time to take action

school-bus

Sending a child to school by bus can be nerve-wracking for parents. From the moment a kid leaves home or boards the bus, parents start worrying on whether they are safe in the bus and whether they reached the school safely. Statistics by WHO say that 41% of deaths of children in India are because of lack of transportation safety.

Technology comes to rescue

While parents can’t travel with their kids every day, there are some applications that offer the next best solution. The apps let parents to monitor their kids’ travel from the bus stop to the school and back again. These apps keep track of the child’s travel real-time and also give parents estimated arrival time. This can help in preventing a child from being left alone in the bus stop and can help parents avoid wasting time waiting for a bus that would be arriving late. These tracking apps can provide parents peace of mind to a great extent.

Beacon receivers can be installed in school buses. These receivers transfer children’s location information to parents via mobile apps so that parents can know exactly where their children are at all times. Knowing that a child is on the assigned bus and is travelling to the right location gives parents an assurance and can also help to investigate if the children happen to be somewhere they are not supposed to be.

Technology solutions like EduPlus gives instant alerts when any student boards or exits the bus. Was the child picked up on time this morning? Did he reach school on time? Was he dropped off at his assigned stop in the evening? Which students are in Bus 5 now? All these questions and much more can be answered by such solutions.

In addition to increasing safety, convenience and accountability, these solutions also make a school bus fleet more profitable- all of which are things parents wish to hear so that they can be at peace about their children travelling in school buses. It’s time for schools across the country to utilize the wide range of benefits offered by such solutions.
