IDTronic Intros New Industrial UHF Readers With Integrated Antennas

The new Bluebox CX-AVI and CX-AVI LR readers are equipped with Ethernet and RS232/RS485 interfaces for a flexible and low-cost installation, according to iDTronic, and works well for parking, waste-management, forklift and logistics applications.Both versions are available for the ETSI or FCC frequency band and support iDTronic's Bluebox software developer's kit (SDK), which includes a demo tool for Microsoft Windows XP, Windows 7 or Windows 8. There is also programming information for C# and C++, as well as a serial command protocol.
Netherlands' Groninger Museum Launches Beacon-enabled App
Groninger Museum, a modern and contemporary art museum in the Netherlands, has launched a new, beacon-enabled mobile app in conjunction with the opening of a new exhibition, "Song Dong, Life is Art, Art is Life." The museum app is the first implementation of a new platform called Tapart, developed by Tapme Media, also in the Netherlands.
The mobile app presents information about artwork and sections of the museum as visitors walk around the Groningen facility and "tap" their smart devices to beacons that employ Bluetooth Smart technology. The Bluetooth beacons, supplied by Estimote, direct the mobile app to access and display specific Web content to visitors. The signal can be detected by a compatible smart device (iOS 7 and higher or Android 4.3 and higher).
