Creating the Internet of My Things with Bluetooth Smart – Android Edition

Over 10 billion devices which use Bluetooth were shipped in the technology’s first 10 years. But last year alone, a further 2.5 billion new Bluetooth devices materialised. Bluetooth is going through what has been described as “quiet revolution”, with massive and increasing levels of adoption driven by the release of the latest version of Bluetooth called “Bluetooth Smart”. Bluetooth Smart enables some exciting and very current technology trends such as IoT (Internet of Things), Wearable Technology, the Smart Home and Beacons.

Android developers have excellent Bluetooth Smart APIs at their disposal and Android “L” just added even greater power and flexibility, with some great new features.

In this session attendees will learn about the fundamental concepts and architecture of Bluetooth Smart and how to create Android apps which exploit it. There will be a thorough review of the Android Bluetooth Smart APIs and code fragments illustrating their use. We’ll consider the case of a smart lighting product and how we can write Android code that controls it. There may even be a demo or two!
