BLEeper utilizes low-cost water-proof Bluetooth beacons across the target areas (land and on coastal water buoys) that facilitate high-accuracy location tracking services for children equipped with any type of low-cost Bluetooth wearable (e.g. wristbands, life-vests). A pilot system based on more than 10 low-cost Bluetooth beacons has been successfully tested, paving the way for larger setups to be deployed across the beaches of Chania, Crete, Greece.
BLEeper is funded by Tetramax.
