We all are well aware about Bluetooth, contrary to that Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) came into existence & its main focus is on low power consumption. It was basically developed for Internet Of Things (IoT). It powers the IntenetOf Your things.With the advent of Bluetooth Smart (BLE or Bluetooth low energy), developers were able to create smaller sensors that run off tiny coin-cell batteries for months, and in some cases, years.
What is BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy)?
Bluetooth Low Energy is a wireless personal area network technology used for transmitting data over short distances. It was basically invented with a great idea of low power consumption & has achieved it in an efficient manner. All Bluetooth enabled smart application can now actually communicate with BLE devices that require comparatively low power such as heart rate monitors, fitness devices, proximity sensors & the list goes on & on.
The importance of Bluetooth lies in fact that it enables thousands of developers to create new innovative products that can communicate with millions of Bluetooth enabled devices already available in the market. It is cost effective, inhibits low energy & has flexible development architecture.
Significant Features of BLE
- The main feature for which it is designed i.e. low power consumption, with this single feature it provides the ability to run for several months on single coin cell batteries.
- No issue of interoperability among different bluetooth vendor products.
- It is easy to set up, robust, and reliable in tough environments.
- Its most common applications are smart home, smart cars, smart health, smart retail, smart sensors, smart farming, smart appliances etc.
