What about a smarter Bluetooth ?

“Can you send me those pics via Bluetooth ?” “I enjoy using my Bluetooth headphones…”Well, the use of Bluetooth is common.It is everywhere. Have you ever wondered how this wireless technology works ?

Bluetooth is a wireless technology standard for exchanging data over short distances ,from fixed and mobile devices, and building personal area networks (PANs). It is invented by telecom vendor Ericsson in 1994 . It can connect several devices and overcome problems of synchronization.

Its successor , Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) sometimes referred to as “Bluetooth Smart”, is a light-weight subset of classic Bluetooth. It was originally introduced under the name Wibree by Nokia in 2006.

Compared to classic Bluetooth, Bluetooth low energy is intended to provide considerably reduced power consumption with higher bit rates while maintaining a similar communication range . It is also characterized by its small size and compatibility with a large panoply of devices…

Bluetooth smart has diverse uses : healthcare profiles (blood pressure measurement, medical temperature measurement devices…)Sports and fitness profiles (sensors attached to a bicycle or exercice bike to measure cadence and wheel speed, devices which measure heart rate…)Proximity sensing, security,…

Bluetooth LE is enabling a whole new category of wireless technology that just wasn’t feasible before. Bluetooth LE makes it easier for developers to create innovative products that communicate with billions of Bluetooth enabled devices and optimize the consumption of their batteries.

AIRMOTE our smart keychain opted for BLE because of its small size and remarkable autonomy to save your time and free your mind from the charging part .Well , you are only limited by your imagination to guess the next use of BLE by AIRMOTE in the future.
