Presentation

Bluetooth low energy is a new technology that is part of the Bluetooth standard. It uses the same radio as Classic Bluetooth but is focusing on small battery-powered devices that are typically using small coin-cell batteries. Bluetooth low energy is growing quickly and is used in devices/phone accessories in areas like fitness, access control, home and building automation but can be used for all kinds of devices benefiting from a wireless connection.

Bluetooth low energy is becoming available in basically all newer smart phones and tablets. The API:s available makes it very easy to develop apps using Bluetooth low energy.

The seminar will give short overview of the Bluetooth low energy technology in general and describe the easy to use model chosen for developing wireless applications with the technology. It will show by practical examples how a smartphone Bluetooth low energy app easily can be written against a live device.
