Ultrasound + BLE beacon

Rtone collaborated with the Stimshop teams to produce the HBeacon hybrid box, combining the advantages of BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) and ultrasound technologies.

Using a mobile application, the box emits sound signals to smartphones in a defined space (geolocation) and can interact with all of these mobile devices, without the need to activate Bluetooth or wireless internet. This enables retail outlets to interact with consumers.

The ultrasound is transmitted by a stand-alone box or by the store’s loudspeakers and adapts to the layout of the space. The signal range can reach 15 to 20 m and be received by all customers. It is completely inaudible and poses no health risk.
