We are dedicated to providing our clients with the highest level of expertise, innovation, and support to ensure their Bluetooth- enabled products achieve their full potential.
The Baby Monitor project utilizes Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology to establish a secure connection between the monitor device and a standard mobile phone. BLE is a particularly suitable choice for this application due to its low power consumption and ability to maintain stable connections over short distances. This synchronization between baby monitor and mobile phone remote controller was facilitated through a TCP network, requiring a secure provisioning process at beginning to ensure that only authorized devices could connect to the baby monitor. This is where BLE technology proved to be invaluable.
We devised a robust and securely authenticated negotiation process between the two devices via BLE using the encryption for the transmitted keys, certificates and passwords. Only after the successful provisioning monitor device could go to internet/cloud and could be remotely controlled by desired mobile device which was proved to be the authorized one.
The Alcotester project integrates BLE technology to enable seamless communication between the device and a mobile application using proprietary data protocol. This integration allows users to control the alcotester remotely, access real-time breathalyzer readings directly on their smartphones, and benefit from additional features such as backend data processing and AI-powered insights into their alcohol consumption patterns. BLE’s low energy consumption makes it an ideal choice for integrating the alcotester with a mobile application.
Within implementation we had to ensure that issues in the data transmission process are detected early and process can be restarted efficiently. Users might repeat alcohol detection multiple times in a short period. We addressed these challenges together with potential error cases to ensure a stable user experience within iOS and also across different Android versions and BLE chips which might vary in different timeout handling.
Our involvement extended to the development of both the peripheral firmware and client mobile application, ensuring seamless synchronization via BLE.
Fitness Remote Drink Mixer:
The Fitness Remote Drink Mixer project employs BLE technology to develop a remote control that allows multiple users to connect to the device and queue orders for their fitness drinks. BLE’s ability to handle multiple concurrent connections makes it well-suited for this application, enabling users to seamlessly personalize their drink orders without interference. The remote control also features a display that provides real-time order status updates, further enhancing the user experience.
To streamline hardware testing during development, we created a Kotlin-based Android application. It served as a comprehensive tool for confirming hardware functionalities, with all tests conducted using BLE control. For instance enabling the LEDs, driving the motors, reading the sensors or receiving the errors.
In the final production application we participated in a cross-platform approach using React Native framework. The application leverages a reactive BLE library to efficiently control the mixer device, ensuring a consistent and user-friendly experience across different platforms.
BLE Wrapper for Ionic and React Native:
The BLE Wrapper for Ionic and React Native project addresses the need for a simplified approach to integrating BLE functionality into mobile
applications developed using the Ionic cross-platform framework and the Nordic Semiconductor module. The wrapper acts as a bridge between the
framework and the BLE module, abstracting away the complexities of Bluetooth communication and providing a user-friendly API that streamlines the
process of connecting to and communicating with BLE devices. This wrapper significantly reduces development time and effort, allowing developers to
focus on building feature-rich mobile applications without getting bogged down in the intricacies of Bluetooth implementation.
Digital Measuring of Race Car Attributes:
The Digital Measuring of Race Car Attributes project leverages BLE technology to collect real-time data from sensors installed on a race car and
transmit it to a central device for analysis. BLE’s ability to handle high-speed data transmission and maintain stable connections in challenging
environments makes it an ideal choice for this application. The data collected from the sensors provides valuable insights into the race car’s performance,
enabling engineers and drivers to optimize its settings and strategies for maximum performance and safety.
We have designed and implemented proprietary data protocol using BER-TLV standards in both xcode for iOS and kotlin for Android, using latest platform
