For a long time people have been interested in the possibility of using Bluetooth to determine the location or position of an object relative to another, for example detecting how close a person’s smartphone is to a beacon.

However, Bluetooth 5 has introduced some new features which can improve the situation.

In this video we explore some of those new features and how they can improve the accuracy, reliability and resolution of location services.
