The Sunshine Coast Council is launching services that use Bluetooth Beacons to provide proximity based information to locals and visitors.
The Council has partnered with Australian Company, iProximity to deliver these smart information services.
Sunshine Coast Council said its initial partnership with iProximity will provide a new way for residents and visitors to enjoy one of the region’s premier destinations.
“We are currently setting the Bluetooth Beacons at the Sculpture Garden at the Maroochy Bushland Botanic Gardens in Tanawha, with a view to rolling other Beacon initiatives in many other areas,” a Council spokesman said.
The information includes pictures, text, audio or video and in the future may also be delivered in different languages to meet the needs of tourists.
iProximity spokesman David Burden said, “we are proud to have been selected by the Sunshine Coast Council as one of their Smart City Partners as they are one of the Australian leaders in deploying these smart capabilities.”
The Sculpture Garden is another self guided walking tour project embarked upon using the iProximity iPX™ and the HelloLocal App.
