Bluvision has partnered with global IT provider SITA to equip Miami International Airport (MIA) with the Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) hardware infrastructure required to facilitate wayfinding capabilities in the airport´s recently upgraded mobile app.
The new localized app, MIA Airport Official 2.0, uses a network of over 550 Bluvision sensor beacons and Bluetooth-to-WiFi gateways (BluFis) installed throughout MIA. The sensor beacons and gateways identify the passenger´s precise location and use Blue-Dot beacon functionality to help them navigate through the airport.
Bluvision´s beacons and BluFis are easy and quick to install, come with a low cost of ownership and are capable of delivering accuracy greater than one-meter. The combination of beacons and BluFis also allow for creating unique geofences so airports can recognize and greet repeat passengers and gain visibility into history of movement enabling predictive analysis and customized passenger experience.
