Trajectories from bluetooth-tracking

Mathias Versichele UGent (2010) Dagstuhl Seminar, Abstracts.
abstract
Bluetooth-tracking was presented as a novel tracking methodology. It consists out of tracking mobile phones and other Bluetooth-enabled devices and using them as a proxy for studying movement behavior of the device carriers. Using this technology entrails both advantages and disadvantages in comparison with traditional methodologies. Indeed, it offers a relatively cheap and easy way of sampling (very) large populations of moving objects in various environments (outdoor and/or indoor) without the need for cooperation of the studied subjects. The sampled trajectories are however much coarser than for example GPStracks and, although it is not in any way illegal, the technology also causes some privacy-concerns. The methodology was illustrated by showing some preliminary results from a tracking study carried out during a cultural mass event in Belgium.
