26 Beacon Innovations for Travelers

From Airport Navigation Apps to Bag-Tracking Tech Concepts

— September 23, 2014 — World
These beacon innovations for travelers range from airport navigation apps to bag-tracking tag accessories. The sophisticated concepts not only keep one connected and safe during their travels but also ensure that one's luggage is never lost again.

Standouts from this list include the Tag Finder, a bag locating accessory that is attached to one's luggage during long travels. The device allows one to know the location of their luggage at all times and avoids confusion at baggage claim.

Another great beacon innovation for travelers includes Taxi Magic, a car service app that makes urban travel easy. Unlike Uber and Halo, this app is equipped with iBeacon technology that broadcasts one's referral code to friends and strangers. If others use Taxi Magic as a result of your referral, you will be granted a $10 ride credit every time this occurs.

Lastly, the London Underground's wayfindr system app is another travel-themed beacon innovation that is gaining attention. This app is designed to assists the blind when using the city's subway systen. Its convenient concept is powered by bluetooth beacons and iBeacon technology that makes travel safe for the visually impaired.
