What Is IBeacon?
IBeacon is a new in-house solution from Apple based on Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology. It is compatible with iOS 7 or higher and expands the location services of iOS devices. IBeacon technology intends the usage of small beacons – low-powered, low-cost transmitter devices – to send out messages, notifications or other data to the nearby devices. Applications, developed with iBeacon can interact with their users without GPS, WiFi, or any other network connection needed.
We use this technology extensively, for example, in our series of ShotTracker sports applications for NBA coaches. We organized close interaction between beacons all round the basketball playground along with the sensors on players’ wrists and basketball net.
Our Technologies Expertise
We base our iBeacon applications development on the latest and most popular technologies on the Market. For example, our expertise includes CoreBluetooth, RxCoreBluetooth, and ReactiveCoreBluetooth development technologies.
IBeacon Projects From MBicycle Portfolio
ShotTracker Game Management
An application that synchronized with other ShotTracker apps to organize and manage tournaments and get players’ and teams’ statistics in real time.
An application for basketball teams to track players’ movement on the court using the beacon-sensors technology.
Matched IBeacon Development Industries
There are a lot of industries on the Market where you can implement your next iBeacon applications. Bluetooth Low Energy technology fits great for short-range low-power direct connectivity to individual wearable devices. It helps capture data from a variety of sensors and send data about the specific parametres - heart rate, temperature, body movements, and much more - to the single interface or to a network of iBeacons and BLE-enabled devices in a particular radius or terrain.
For example, MBicycle proficient team realizes interaction between beacons via BLE technology in a variety of applications such as ShotTracker Player, ShotTracker Coach, Shoot-A-Way, ShotTracker Team, ShotTracker Fan, Spreo, and ShotTracker Game Management. So the prevalent industries we’ve already implemented iBeacons interaction in are Sports and Navigation. But in practice you can put in place iBeacons interaction and BLE technology in the app development for almost every field or industry on the Market.
Our experienced development team is here to help you with creating an intelligent project using iBeacon technology. You can discuss with us the abilities that iBeacon technology will give you in your future app or service. Feel free to share main ideas you have, and the issues that concern you.Talk With Us
Why Develop IBeacon Applications With Us?
- We have long-term experience in the field of implementing cutting-edge technologies in the projects for our Clients. For example, we realized indoor navigation in business facilities using BLE technology for Spreo company.
- With Headquarter in Boston (USA) and development center in Europe, MBicycle qualified team offers development of iOS, Android, and Java web services and applications.
- We have experience in creating both iOS-only and cross-platform apps with iBeacon technology.
- MBicycle’s qualified consultants and experts are ready 24/7 to lend assistance and answer any questions you have.
- We made series of ShotTracker applications for iOS and Android, that based on iBeacon technology. With this technology we organized tracking of basketball players’ positions on the playground, their shooting attempts and percentages, points, and court time of each player remotely. Soon after that National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) has named ShotTracker their “Official Wearable Technology”.
- We offer on time delivery of applications with robust architecture and clear code, right to your needs.
