The EMBC01-Eddystone beacons allow you to deploy your beacons once and use them many times over. Build highly personalized features into your app or use nearby notifications to deliver web or app content, with no prior app install required. The beacons themselves do not need programming and are ready to go!
The EMBC01-Eddystone beacon firmware implements the standardized Eddystone UID, URL and TLM packet advertisements and allow for provisioning using the Eddystone Configuration GATT Service.
Using the Google Eddystone provisioning service implemented in various mobile applications, the device can be connected to and the parameters customized. Once the beacons are deployed, the beacons can be registered with the Google Eddystone Platform and associated with metadata, mobile data applications, and other cloud centric services and analytics.
You can associate data with your registered beacons as attachments. Attachments are arbitrary blobs of data that are served back as messages to your Android and iOS apps through the Nearby Messages API. You can update attachments remotely, eliminating the need to physically visit each beacon.
Using the Google Beacon Platform and one or more EMBC01-Eddystone beacons a network can be created and managed remotely integrating Google Services across Android devices, the web and the cloud. For more details on the Google Platform, how to utilize it and how to integrate it with your beacons see the Google Beacon Platform Overview.
EM Microelectronic forum has the latest documentation so once the EMBC01 Eddystone beacons are deployed, the beacons can be registered with the Google Eddystone Platform and associated with metadata, mobile data applications, and other cloud centric services and analytics!
