Japan Airlines Pilots Beacons at 13 Airports

Japan Airlines is carrying out a Bluetooth beacon pilot project at 13 airports, using a solution provided by Dai Nippon Printing Co. (DNP). A similar pilot is being conducted by Aeon Mall at some of its locations in Japan. At each site, DNP has installed Spansion's MB39C811 Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacons, which come with energy-harvesting power-management integrated circuits (PMICs), as well as a solar panel to capture power from the light and use that power to transmit data. DNP's beacon solution helps identify location data, which Japan Airlines and Aeon Mall can then employ in their own apps installed on customers' smartphones, in order to provide those individuals with relevant data.
