About the LectureBluetooth has been reinvented! Bluetooth 4.0, also known as “Bluetooth Smart”, will enable many new applications that require a radio that is simple, secure and everywhere. Simple: much less so than traditional Bluetooth or Zigbee. Secure: AES-128 encryption. Everywhere: the current estimate is that 370 million smart phones were sold “Smart Ready” in 2012. In this interactive lecture, details of the new standard, and applications in low energy consuming smart devices will be discussed.
