AbstractThis document serves a complete paper design report of a Smart Beacon Project . This project researches as well implements a small Bluetooth enabled frequency generating transmitter which then uses the android application as a receiver. Details on the actual design are entailed in the context of this document. This document contains two main sections of the paper design namely: The hardware paper design section and the software paper design section which are further broken down accordingly. The author of this documents hopes that after you have read this document you will have a complete and clear idea of the design such that you can make out of t your own model of the smart beacon from the given paper design.
