Amount of beacons needed


I'm wondering how much beacons it would take to cover 1 square kilometer?

Hi Pieter,

It depends what you plan to do with the beacons. The range of a single beacon is up to 70 m. If you think about indoor mapping it's very important to understand the correlation between accuracy and distance.

Mobile devices can locate Estimote Beacons down to a few inches but the nearer you are to a beacon the more accurate the reported distance, likewise the farther away the beacon to a mobile device, the less accurate.

Here is the video of the experiments by The Talkig Llama

Let me know if that helps.
