A Method and System for Determining a User Device to Track in Micro -Location Setting

Disclosed is a method and system for determining a user device to track in micro-location setting. The micro-location setting includes technologies such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth beacons to track optimal user devices in a particular location.

In an exemplary embodiment, the method and system identifies users attending a venue and collects information related to user's devices to determine a target user for tracking. Here, the information collected from the users' devices can be, but need not be limited to, a type of the device, battery life of the device, capabilities of the device, history of the device, age of the device, performance of the device and the like.

The type of the device is used to identify whether the device is a phone or tablet or wearable device. Similarly, battery life of the device is used to identify whether the device is having low charge and avoid the device from tracking so as to maintain the connection. The capabilities of the device are used to identify whether the device has the Bluetooth turned-on, so as to receive push notifications from Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacons. Further, the history of the device is used to identify a primary device used as target in the past and the age of the device is used to find the duration or time took to recognize visitor's device. Additionally, the performance of the device is identified based on the software used b...
