This article looks at the demands on low power and mobile connectivity, wireless technology options, wireless coexistence and potential low energy applications focusing on the Classic Bluetooth and Bluetooth low energy solutions.
This article looks at the use of Bluetooth technology in industrial automation applications to provide an alternative wireless data communications capability.
With the introduction of Bluetooth low energy technology, considerable interest has been seen in media and the market regarding its possibilities.
Developing connected wireless applications requires two main tasks. First your design must perform its designated function, and second it has to communicate with the host PC, laptop, tablet, or smartphone.
An explanation of the differences between 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz wireless LAN and a discussion of the pros and cons of using each in industrial applications.
Reducing the cost of running lighting systems is an increasingly important factor for commercial facilities.
Wireless communication has been used in industrial applications for more than 30 years. Among the first applications where wireless was used was in wireless control of Automated Guided Vehicles.
IEEE 802.11 standards define communications protocols within the media access control (MAC) and physical (PHY) layers at the lowest levels of the standard TCP/IP protocol stack.
For the last decade, Classic Bluetooth technology has successfully reduced the usage of wires in headsets, computer mice, keyboards as well as industrial and medical Serial and Ethernet cables.
4 semiconductor companies are fielding chips & modules that conform to the Bluetooth low energy specification, and new dev tools are coming to market quickly.
The Bluetooth low-energy application space is much wider than the Classic Bluetooth space, going beyond the most popular examples of health and fitness, etc.
There are many wireless protocol options for low-power wireless sensor networks, but none are better suited to the task than Bluetooth low energy
