B-Mobile® Tracking Solution
Helmet Wearing Detection
The Lansitec B-Mobile solution integrates Bluetooth 5.0 (BLE mode), NB-IoT and LTE technology in its core product, the Bluetooth Gateway. This device collects Bluetooth messages from up to 200 devices or sensors nearby, processes the data and transmits it to your app via NB-IoT or LTE-M. The Bluetooth payload data, receiving duration, the NB-IoT/LTE-M report interval can be adjusted via downlink commands.
When activated, a Bluetooth gateway scans for available NB-IoT bands. If unsuccessful, it attempts to connect to an LTE-M network. Unlike LoRa devices, no additional hardware deployment (such as a LoRaWAN gateway) is required as the network operator provides this infrastructure. To know which network and which operator support NB-IoT or LTE-M, please refer to the NB-IoT & Cat-M Deployment Table
NB-IoT or LTE-M consumes much less power compared with 2G, 3G, 4G (LTE) or high-speed 5G, resulting in extended battery life and compact size.
The B-Mobile solution is a versatile product series that optimizes power efficiency, deployment flexibility, and performance. It can be used for asset tracking, personnel management, and Bluetooth data transmission. Some of its potential applications are:
- Estimating the number of assets within a defined spatial region.
- Transmitting a Bluetooth sensor’s message to the cloud via NB-IoT/LTE-M, especially in outdoor or large indoor environments.
- Measuring the occupancy level of a room.
- Monitoring the temperature variation in a supermarket refrigeration unit.
- Lost and found.
1. Vehicle tracker in a parking lot
Product: Indoor Bluetooth Gateway, Compact Bluetooth Gateway, Solar Bluetooth Gateway
Attach a Bluetooth beacon or tag to a car or car key.
Deploy the indoor and compact Bluetooth gateways indoor on the ceiling or the wall.
Deploy the solar one on a pole towards the sun.
The Bluetooth gateways receive the data, ID (Major and Minor), and RSSI from the beacons or tags and transmit them to the network, then to your APP in turn. Since the coordinates of the Bluetooth gateways are known during the deployment, the APP can determine the location of the beacons or tags based on the data, ID, and RSSI received from them. This way, the gateway enables the customers or your employee to track the location of a car and car key in real-time, enhancing management efficiency and customer experience.
The compact Bluetooth gateway features a built-in 600mAh rechargeable battery and can operate during power outages.
The solar Bluetooth gateway can work continuously without any external power supply. It is an ideal product for outdoor environments with no power connection.
2.Data transfer for monitoring.
Bluetooth sensors can measure various parameters, such as temperature, heart rate, blood pressure, etc. You can configure the filter data and useful data through downlink commands so that the gateway only transmits temperature, heart rate, blood pressure, ID, and RSSI. Some typical applications are:
- Sensor care center and hospital Bluetooth equipment monitoring.
- Temperature monitoring in supermarkets or warehouses.
- Temperature change in concrete or steak cooking.
- Occupancy detection in a room
3.Asset tracking in a hospital, warehouse, and office
Product: NB-IoT/LTE-M Indoor Bluetooth Gateway, Compact Bluetooth Gateway, Macro Bluetooth Gateway
The deployment and data flow are similar to the parking lot use case. You just need to attach a beacon to an asset and assign a Bluetooth tag to a patient or worker.
In situations where there is no power outlet, even indoors, the Macro Bluetooth gateway with a built-in 38,000mAh battery pack is your best choice. It can operate for 7 years @ 3s Bluetooth receiving duration and 5 minutes NB-IoT/LTE-M uplink report interval with 12 beacon’s data.
4.Headcount in classrooms & offices
In this case, you can install an indoor or compact Bluetooth gateway in each room, then assign a Bluetooth tag to each person. The Bluetooth gateway will transmit all beacons/tags in the room so that you can track the occupancy of the room. You can also monitor how long a person or an asset stays in a specific area.
5.Lost and found
You can use a battery-powered Bluetooth gateway (compact, Macro or solar) to find lost assets in an office or warehouse. To do this, turn on Bluetooth receiving all the time and walk around the area. The gateway will report all nearby asset beacons to the server to help you locate the lost one.
Beacon sends UUID, major,
minor, etc. periodically. The
distance is 50m.
