Im currently working on my final year project. It is to improve the quality of life of people in nursing homes. So my group decided to come up with a system that can communicate with a device attached onto the wheelchair and bring them to their destination.
The Estimote beacon can map out the area and show their current location. The device attached on the chair consists of an Arduino, bluetooth module (Oblu) and motors. I was thinking of storing the map/route from each room to a specific place on the same level in the Arduino, and when the user inputs the start and end position from their phone, the device will follow the specific map/route.
I was wondering how do I create an app such that the user can input the starting and ending points for the wheelchair, then the wheelchair brings the person there, with the help of the Estimote beacons.
Can the Estimote beacons detect the bluetooth module eventhough it is not a phone connected to it?
Really appreciate some help with this!! thank you
