BLE Tracking with Grafana

Hi everyone, I am wanting some advice.

I was wondering if anyone has used OMG to collect BLE tag information for location tracking, that can be displayed in Grafana.

For example, place a map as a background in grafana, then position the gateways in their known locations, then have the tracked BLE tags move from one gateway to the next

I would like to try this in an underground mine, as a cheap solution to tracking equipment and personel

If there are any examples of this out there, please point me in the right direction

I will be doing this when I have all my nodes installed in my house, I figured I will first do some tests and just use a scatter plot or something to test it, and experiment with rssi reliability, might be unpractical in the end

if you use homeassistant, you can add a sensor using an mqtt integration, then install influxdb and grafana via the supervisor and it will just start recording the data
