Projects / OpenBeacon


OpenBeacon is a open and generic design for an active wireless transceiver device hardware that operates in the 2.4GHz ISM band. The tag contains a unique serial number, but may have other information like acceleration measurement. The OpenBeacon tag is designed as a transceiver device, and therefore both transmits and receives radio waves. The intention of this project is to offer a wide range of use cases such as visitor or item tracking and wireless remote control with a free self-contained and low-cost RFID design. It enables wireless remote control application and ultra low power wireless meshing nodes.
