4 What is Eddystone-UID?

Eddystone-UID is a component of the Eddystone specification for BLE beacons. It contains 36 hexadecimal digits composed of 20 hexadecimal digits Namespace ID, 12 hexadecimal digits Instance ID and 4 hexadecimal digits RFU, split into 3 groups, separated by hyphens.

Eg. 0102030405060708090A-0B0C0D0E0F00-0000

Each of the 3 groups must contain the following number of characters per section:

First section: 20

Second section: 12

Third section: 4

Characters should be number from 0 to 9, and letters from A to F. A group can be made entirely of just number or letters or combination of both.

 

5 How to use Eddystone-UID

Eddystone-UID can be used with the Android system’s Nearby. First you have to create a UID that has not been registered by anyone else. Then make the UID setting for the beacon. And register it on Google’s server and associate the UID with the corresponding push information on the Google’s server. Once the configuration completed, when the android device turns on smartphone’s screen, nearby will scans the surrounding Beacon device automatically, and the corresponding push information will be displayed.

If iOS devices need to use Eddystone-UID, must install an app,because the IOS system does not provide direct support.
