MTR Hong Kong, your intelligent route underground
This is a project based on beacon technology for the metro stations in Hong Kong. We installed iBKS beacons in the railway stations with the objective of improving the experience of the passengers during its journey.
This markers, in communication with an app, inform about the platform you have to go to get the train; track your route and alert you when and where you have to get off.

How we did it
It was a pilot project with MTR Hong Kong and we developed and installed our iBKS beacons around several railway stations. This project was classified as finalist on the IoT Awards 2014.
