Title:Investigation into the application of Beacon technology in the entertainment industry.
Beacons (or iBeacons as Apple have branded them) are an upcoming and exciting new technology with promising application in the retail sectors. I want to look into the opportunities for beacon technology in an entertainment industry context; with particular emphasis on event arenas, festivals and theme parks where vast amounts of smart phone users are present. Some examples of functionality I wish to explore are: - Interactive maps with friend locations - Location based advertising - Efficient ticket admission - Acquisition of user data - Live queue times I aim to create several Android prototype mobile applications incorporating beacon technology, each with varying uses and functionalities to aid the investigation.
