In his talk, Faiz presented the eBook rental facility via Bluetooth beacon technology, a partnership effort between Malaysia Airports and e-Sentral (Xentral Methods).
This facility which consists of 40 ebook beacons strategically placed at locations of KLIA is the first of its kind in the world. It enables passengers at Kuala Lumpur International Airport to download ebooks for their travels and during waiting time.
This smart facility which works on principles of geo-fencing location targeted technology operates via a Bluetooth beacon signal that communicates with the passenger’s smart phone application allowing them to access a special virtual library of ebooks for borrowing.
Currently, travelers in KLIA have a choice of more than 400 ebook titles at anytime ranging from all sorts of categories in English, Malay and Mandarin, and a maximum of two titles to borrow at anytime for two days.
Once the ebook is downloaded, the passenger can use the eBook without the need of Internet.
