Key Features

Build hands-on IoT projects using Bluetooth Low Energy and learn about Bluetooth 5 and its features.
Build a health tracking system, and indoor navigation and warehouse weather monitoring projects using smart devices.
Build on a theoretical foundation and create a practice-based understanding of Bluetooth Low Energy.

Book Description

Bluetooth Low Energy, or Bluetooth Smart, is Wireless Personal Area networking aimed at smart devices and IoT applications. BLE has been increasingly adopted by application developers and IoT enthusiasts to establish connections between smart devices.

This book initially covers all the required aspects of BLE, before you start working on IoT projects. In the initial stages of the book, you will learn about the basic aspects of Bluetooth Low Energy-such as discovering devices, services, and characteristics-that will be helpful for advanced-level projects. This book will guide you through building hands-on projects using BLE and IoT. These projects include tracking health data, using a mobile App, and making this data available for health practitioners; Indoor navigation; creating beacons using the Raspberry Pi; and warehouse weather Monitoring. This book also covers aspects of Bluetooth 5 (the latest release) and its effect on each of these projects.

By the end of this book, you will have hands-on experience of using Bluetooth Low Energy to integrate with smart devices and IoT projects.

What you will learn
