Every year, the Bluetooth® developer community challenges the limits of wireless connectivity, and each year, to support and encourage this spirit of innovation, the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) releases new developer resources. For your coding convenience, we’ve assembled a list of key developer resources released over the last year.
In this detailed technical paper, Bluetooth® Developer Relations Manager Martin Woolley examines the issues and factors that impact the reliability of a wireless communication system and the many features and mitigation techniques Bluetooth technology offers to help developers achieve highly reliable communication even in the most challenging environments.
This paper provides a technical examination of which Bluetooth Mesh models to use in different types of lighting and sensor devices and how these devices form adaptive, highly efficient, connected lighting networks.
This comprehensive document summarizes and explains the three primary updates in Bluetooth Core Specification version 5.2.
This self-study education resource for software developers and technical architects explains Bluetooth® Internet Gateways , middleware that interfaces Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) devices with the internet.
Updates to Developer Study guides
This year the developer relations team at the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) have been hard at work updating previously published developer study guides impacted by technical changes to the Android platform relating to Bluetooth® technology and permissions.
- An Introduction to the Bluetooth Mesh Proxy Function: This self-study educational resource covers the key technicalities involved in creating applications for smartphones and other platforms that can monitor and control nodes in a Bluetooth Mesh network
- The Bluetooth LE Security Study Guide: This study guide outlines the toolkit of security features which Bluetooth Low Energy (LE) possesses and how they work, play developers can get hands-on experience writing code which exploits some of the most important Bluetooth LE security features
- An Introduction to Bluetooth Beacons: This self-study educational resource covers both the theory and practice of developing Bluetooth beacons and integrating beacons into existing products and applications
- How to Deploy BlueZ on a Raspberry Pi Board as a Bluetooth Mesh Provisioner: This step-by-step study guide teaches you how to rebuild the kernel on a Raspberry Pi board to fit the requirement of BlueZ, how to install BlueZ, and how to use the tools of BlueZ to provision Bluetooth Mesh devices through PB-GATT or PB-ADV
