Overview of Bluetooth Location

Overview of Bluetooth Location


Bluetooth location is classified into Bluetooth terminal location, Bluetooth tag location, and Bluetooth data transparent transmission.

  • Bluetooth terminal location technology uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) devices and a location system to locate Bluetooth terminals through the iBeacon protocol. An AP with a built-in Bluetooth module collects information about BLE devices and sends the information to a server through an AC. The server sends data about maps and BLE device locations to a Bluetooth terminal through an app server. The Bluetooth terminal then works with the location app to calculate its own location. Alternatively, the AP collects information carried in Bluetooth terminal location packets and sends the information to the AC or location server for server-side location.
  • Bluetooth tag location technology uses Bluetooth tags and a location system to locate Bluetooth tags through the BLE protocol. An AP with a built-in Bluetooth module collects information about Bluetooth tags and sends the information to a location server to locate the Bluetooth tags. The AP also monitors battery power of Bluetooth tags and checks whether Bluetooth tags are disconnected.
  • Bluetooth data transparent transmission technology is used to enable an AP with a built-in Bluetooth module to collect data from Bluetooth clients (such as Bluetooth thermometers, blood pressure monitors, and heart rate monitors) and upload the data to a server.


  • Bluetooth terminal location is used for self-location of users in shopping malls and parking lots where BLE devices are deployed. APs scan BLE devices and upload obtained information about the BLE devices to a location server through an AC. The location server then returns location results to users. Store keepers can push promotion information to users through the BLE devices.
  • Bluetooth tag location is used to locate Bluetooth tags placed on target objects or persons, so that users can easily locate and manage key assets or persons.
  • Bluetooth data transparent transmission is configured to enable Bluetooth clients worn by users to obtain their health data and send the data to a server. In this way, users' health conditions can be easily monitored and analyzed.
