Smartcard is a self-contained, location-aware, mini beacon which is packaged into a credit-card form-factor

Smartcard is a fully self-contained, location-aware, beacon which is packaged into a credit-card form-factor. If the card is set to check in every 30 minutes, lifetime is expected to be around 1 year. The card determines its location via UWB time-of-flight and triangulation.

Configuration of the card can be done using a smartphone and uses BLE. For configuration purposes, the card can be woken-up using a magnet (engaging with a reed-switch).
