The Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology provides an effective means for indoor location and navigations by using Beacons - BLE devices that can transmit and receive signals over short distances. Device’s information and goods’ information that is linked to a Beacon can be archived by a mobile application, which is basically a Bluetooth - enabled application. In this paper, we present the design and development of an user - driven information IoT system based on the BLE technology. An experimental product, ESMarket, is a system that uses our self - development Beacon - ESBeacon for smart supermarkets with the ESBeacons are placed in a small supermarket shelves and a Bluetooth - enabled smartphone is used to install the digital supermarket application to communicate with these ESBeacons. The results show that when a smartphone appears within the ESBeacon range, it will display information related to the shelves on the screen.
