In using the EMERGE app, attendees are able to receive real time messaging throughout the conference when they enter within the range of an iBeacon or a geofence. The application detects the presence of a BLE emitting device deployed on the platform and returns a message tied to the beacon or geofence. The app also lets attendees scan the back of their badges and unlock a hidden message by recognizing the print material through augmented reality.
The Emerge app allows attendees to save and manage all delivered messages in one single place.
Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
