What is Physical Web?

The Physical Web is an open approach to enable quick and seamless interactions with physical objects and locations

What You Need To Prepare?

  • BLE(Bluetooth Low Energy) - Beacon






  • URL

How does this work?

The Physical Web enables you to see a list of URLs being broadcast by objects in the environment around you. Any object can be embedded with a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacon, which is a low powered, battery efficient device that broadcasts content over bluetooth. Beacons that support the Eddystone protocol specification can broadcast URLs. 

What is Beacon?

A beacon is a small Bluetooth radio transmitter.
It’s kind of like a lighthouse: it repeatedly transmits a single signal that other devices can see. Instead of emitting visible light, though, it broadcasts a radio signal that is made up of a combination of letters and numbers transmitted on a regular interval of approximately 1/10th of a second. A Bluetooth-equipped device like a smartphone can “see” a beacon once it’s in range, much like sailors looking for a lighthouse to know where they are.​

Deploying beacons

  • 1 Beacon, 1 Url
    • broadcast a single web page associated with a particular location or object
  • Many beacons, 1 URL
    • multiple beacons could be used at a conference to broadcast a link to the schedule.
  • Many beacons, many URLs
    • associate unique URLs with different locations in some space like each exhibit at a museum


iBeacon is a protocol developed by Apple and introduced at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in 2013. Various vendors have since made iBeacon-compatible hardware transmitters – typically called beacons – a class of Bluetooth low energy (BLE) devices that broadcast their identifier to nearby portable electronic devices. The technology enables smartphones, tablets and other devices to perform actions when in close proximity to an iBeacon


Eddystone is a protocol specification that defines a Bluetooth low energy (BLE) message format for proximity beacon messages. It describes several different frame types that may be used individually or in combinations to create beacons that can be used for a variety of applications. (Announced in April 2016)
