Identifying the BLE Advertising Channel for Reliable Distance Estimation on Smartphones 
Abstract:
As a response to the global COVID-19 surge in 2020, many countries have implemented lockdown or stay-at-home policies. If, however, the contact persons of every infected patient could be identified, the number of virus transmissions could be reduced, while the more incisive measures could be softened.

Here, smartphones emit and scan for Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) signals for detecting devices in ran...    »
