Since the release of Bluetooth 5 in 2016, it has been widely adopted by the global IoT community to make all kinds of smart devices. Bluetooth 5 delivers a faster solution as its transmission speed is 4.2 times faster than the previous versions, with its range quadruples while boosting the capacity of message broadcasting by 8 times.
Additionally, Bluetooth 5 supports indoor positioning and navigation. By integrating with Wi-Fi technology, Bluetooth 5 can locate objects indoor and is accurate to within 100 m. Whether it is data synchronization With features such as high-performance, low-power, low-cost, better security, and easy-to-develop, Bluetooth 5 has become the priority of many smart home appliance vendors.
But, before we move on, do you know that Bluetooth logo is an intellectual property?
According to research firm IHS Markit, the number of IoT devices will increase on average 12% each year from 27 billion in 2017 to 125 billion in 2030. As more devices go on the Net, the limited wireless channels have become more congested that brings plenty of connectivity issues to the real-world and further deteriorates user’s experiences.
Unlike one-to-one communication of traditional devices, communication of IoT devices has become one-to-many. The performance of IoT devices should involve in three factors: product capability, network connectivity and user environment/ behavior. Vendors thus need a new methodology to verify products before launching to the market. This article will discuss a new methodology of IoT device validation “Heat Map Analysis”, which is used to perceive real-world factors and further discover and resolve common wireless connectivity issues.
The previous article had been introduced the new technologies of Bluetooth v3.0 + HS and Bluetooth v4.0 + LE, so we will realize that Bluetooth wireless technology is making big breakthroughs in new markets. Next, let’s see how the Bluetooth SIG can help your company find new opportunities for your products.
Basically, the major test of Bluetooth certification can be divided into three dimensions, including
Without external network connection, Bluetooth technology defines a uniform structure for a wide range of devices to connect and communicate with each other. Thus, among the wireless transmission technologies, Bluetooth technology is a short-range communications technology that is very convenient and secure. Nowadays, you can find it in billions of devices ranging from mobile phones to desktops or laptops.
To pursue a better quality of life, people put a lot more efforts into exercise and diet today. The healthcare market is getting bigger while the rate of aging is rising, many kinds of reasons have raised the importance of medical electronics, and the increasing importance allows healthcare industry to come up with its own technical standard.
Along with the trend of smart portable devices, automobile electronics market is now taking a spot besides of smartphone and smart TV. Recently, the majority of people are getting familiar with the term “Smart Car”; user-friendly design that combines automobile with three fields: information, communication and entertainment. In-vehicle infotainment system is now the major trend in automobile electronics product development.
