Bluetooth has been re-invented as Bluetooth Low Energy and has thereby been optimized for 1) simple applications, and 2) the ability to run on coin cells for years. The layers from the antenna up to the applications support middleware, and these layers are documented in the 2010 Bluetooth 4.0 specification. The first wave of applications are now being deployed, and there is support in mobile phones such as the iPhone 4S and Motorola Droid RAZR. Support will appear soon in PCs and other internet gateways.
Topics addressed will include the following:
What is Bluetooth Low Energy?
How does it work?
How does it compare to classic Bluetooth and to Zigbee (using IEEE 802.15.4)?
What is it good for?
Where can you learn more?
This talk will include a demo.
