Wireless: BLE Android

Case Study:

Wireless: BLE Android

A customer had a product concept that they needed help with involving tracking data of several sensors that are positioned within crash test manikins. The sensing is accomplished using the ConnectBlue OLP425 modules based on the Texas Instruments CC2541 8051 based processors with an embedded Chipcon Bluetooth radio for BLE connectivity. The sensor modules beaconed accelerometer data (X/Y/Z), temperature, battery and serial numbers. Pentad used a Google Nexus 7 Gen 2 tablet to communicate with the sensors via the Android based tablet.

Users can edit preferences using a drop down preferences menu. Preferences can apply globally or per device. Dropdown menus represent global preferences. To change device settings, a user clicks on the cell which represents that device. Additional settings and functionality were implemented and tested to meet client requirements.
