It is very hard to find someone in big events and navigation inside a room would be very usefull

What it does

It is an networking app which allows to search for people and navigate through the room to find them

How I built it

We used couple of raspberry pies to act as stationary bluetooth anchors and using signal strength determine where you are

Challenges I ran into

Internet connection, bluetooth libraries in different platforms and different versions

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

It is working (socket server, location estimation, bluetooth hell)

What I learned

How to hack bluetooth

What's next for Texi

add casting information to inform people that you are looking someone and for people to search what is in the event. also add wifi signal to provide better estimate.
