Abstract: Advanced positioning technology has led to the development of delivery services of automatic advertisements and notifications to the user based on his/her location. For indoor environments, Notification environments developed using beacons are preferred. A variety of applications from shopping malls and museums, prefer Indoor positioning systems using beacons to subject monitoring and tracking.The usability and reliability of these positioning systems are based on their accuracy, cost and the ease of deployment. In an indoor space, Beacons are installed by users, to construct the notification environment. To make setting of notification positions easier, the beacon installed is linked to the notification content. Using this system the customer as time is saved as customer gets notifications on his Smartphone when they pass through any malls, store etc. When the customer finds a notification they react to that and reach to that space. Customer enters into the space and gets more notifications about the space which may help the customer. Although, the Global Positioning System (GPS) is an accurate solution for outdoor space, it cannot be used in the indoor space.
