About the SemBeacon specification and its maintainers

SemBeacon was designed by Ph.D candidate Maxim Van de Wynckel of the Web & Information Systems Engineering (WISE) Lab under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Beat Signer. SemBeacon is a semantic beacon specification for Bluetooth Low Energy that broadcasts a resource URI containing a full semantic description of the beacon, its location and any other related information.

The specification is built on top of AltBeacon and adds an Eddystone-URL compatible scan response that includes an URI that describes the beacon.

For full details on the specification, check the documentation.
