The city of Amsterdam, Yenlo, and partners are together building the biggest iBeacon Living Lab by using WSO2 products. Beacons are small radio devices that send out bluetooth signals that can be picked up by smartphones. As part of the smart city initiative, these beacons will literally become part of the city. First, the iBeacon Mile (slightly longer than 3.4 km), consisting of 60 beacon installations, will be installed at the central station of Amsterdam and form a route that leads to the Scheepvaartmuseum. Soon there will be nearly 3000 beacons throughout the city of Amsterdam.
Beacons allow for a much more precise determination of location (from 80 meters to less than 50 centimeters) enabling a whole new level of location based services, both indoors and outdoors. For example, iBeacons enable better navigation, hyper local advertising and couponing, and provide passersby with historic content about monuments and museums.
In order to open up the beacons to developers, Yenlo created a WSO2 solution. In dit webinar bespreken we:
- Het iBeacon Mile-project
- De manier waarop we een openbare set API's hebben opengesteld voor ontwikkelaars via:
- WSO2 API Manager
- WSO2 Enterprise Service Bus
- WSO2 Data Services Server
