ByteLight Shows Off LED-based Indoor Positioning Tech at Boston Museum
Indoor Positioning start-up ByteLight announced last week the first public pilot of its LED-based technology at the Boston Museum of Science.

ByteLight-enabled lights transmit proprietary signals which can be picked up by camera-equipped mobile devices (front facing cameras). Once signals are detected, the device calculates its position without the need for an active network connection.

ByteLight installed over 20 of their programmed LED light bulbs, produced by Solais Lighting, in a 2,000-square-foot discovery zone of the museum called Cahners ComputerPlace.

Touching a map on the iPad supplied by the Museum, visitors can check their position, search for different interactive spots, get directions in Cahners ComputerPlace or take a self-guided tour.
