Controlling Bluetooth Mesh Networks with Android Applications from Martin Woolley

Bluetooth mesh is a new Bluetooth technology which was released in 2017. It allows secure networks of tens of thousands of Bluetooth devices to be created and truly smart, self-optimising buildings to be created, with sensors, lights, air-conditioning units and more, all working wirelessly and automatically together.

Bluetooth mesh networks and the devices they contain need to be monitored and controlled, sometimes by humans using a GUI application. This session will explain how Android can be developed for this purpose.
