Soon, the Bluetooth technology will gain new routes. INdT is contributing with project BlueZ, by implementing the support to the new technology Bluetooth Low Energy. Representing INdT, developers Claudio Takahasi, Anderson Briglia, Vinicius Gomes, Bruna Moreira and Anderson Lizardo are involved with this task.
“The Bluetooth technology is already part of the majority of mobile phones and portable computers around the world. Since it’s not just a matter of a simple update, once it involves a specific hardware for Low Energy, dual mode units, which support traditional Bluetooth and Low Energy Bluetooth, will gradually appear in the market,” explains Claudio Takahasi.
According to the developer, the new technology is focused on a quick exchange of small quantities of information. Besides, it proposes that the single mode Bluetooth starts to be adopted in small devices, such as sensors with energy consumption restrictions, which could, also establish communication amongst mobile phones.
“One of the most important factors are the frontiers and applicability that this improvement in technology provides. Simplifying the hardware is the consequence of one necessity: theintegration of devices through a common and widely used technology,” affirms the researcher.
These characteristics of the new Bluetooth version promise to attract a large variety of markets. Low energy devices will be used on the Fitness/Wellness market, automation and domestic control or in any other scenario that requires the integration of mobile devices.
“More than working to develop new technologies, we understand that the world that we seek to foresee in the future is, in fact, integrated, where people are increasingly connected with each other and with the world with which they interact. That’s why, advances in this sense give us an indication that we are on the right track,” concludes Takahasi.
