Abstract

Interest in Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) as a proximity sensor has increased in recent years, but few studies have investigated its potential in an outdoor environment or as a means of localisation. A purpose-built device was designed for the study, which aimed to conduct a calibration to assess the relationship between the Received Signal Strength Indictor of a BLE beacon and BLE reader to develop a distance prediction model. This was then utilized in a series of static beacon and on-sheep studies, using a multilateration approach to determine a beacon’s location within a field environment.
