Fast moving beacons

i would like to know if it is possible to monitor a large amount of fast moving beacons. What i want to do is to get notified when a moving beacon passes my phone within a range. How long does it take for the app to detect a beacon (worst case vs. best case) Can this be done in background? Are there any restrictions how many beacons can be detected simultaneously.

Hi Coca,

It generally highly depends on advertising interval you set for the beacons. It can be as low as 50 ms (20 pings a second) or 2000 ms (1 ping each 2 seconds). It's also worth to note that iOS devices by default probe for Bluetooth signal once every second.

And yes, monitoring for beacons does work in the background.
