NOTE:See below the links to each of the tutorials.
This Bluetooth Module PRO has been mainly designed to discover high amount of bluetooth devices in a variable area. It can be connected in a Xbee shield for Arduino to work.
- Chip: Bluegiga WT12
- Bluetooth v2.1 + EDR. Class 2
- TX Power: 7 Power levels [-27dBm, +3dBm]
- RX sensitivity: -90 dBm
- Antenna: 2dBi
- Range: from 10 to 50 meters depending tx power and environment conditions.
- Received Strength Signal Indicator (RSSI) for each scanned device
- Class of Device (CoD) for each scanned device
- Bluetooth module integrates a firmware called Iwrap, developed by manufacturer which offers many possibilities.
- Moreover, Libelium has developed a specific API to allow using this module with Waspmote. There are many useful functions which can be used as a guideline for other designs. Refer to Libelium web site for more information.
Bluetooth module has different power consumption according its operating state. Next table shows information about it.
|Sleep||< 0.5 mA|
|ON (IDLE state)||2 mA|
|Inquiry at minimum power||33.5 mA|
|Inquiry at maximum power||36.5 mA|

This tutorial describes some features of Bluetooth module PRO for Arduino / Raspberry Pi which has been mainly designed to discover high amount of bluetooth devices in a variable area. Besides that, connection processes between two bluetooth modules are shown.
It has to be mentioned that inquiry processes of bluetooth module are anonymous due to only MAC address is obtained from the bluetooth remote device. No account or phone numbers are obtained. These facts allows saving privacy of bluetooth users.
This tutorial allows the user to measure temperature and amount of light and send it through Bluetooth to an SPP (Serial Port Profile) application.
This project can be developed with Arduino or Intel Galileo. It is also compatible with Raspberry Pi using the Raspberry Pi to Arduino shields connection bridge.
The idea behind the Raspberry Pi to Arduino shields connection bridge is to allow to use any of the shields, boards and modules designed for Arduino in Raspberry Pi.
It includes also the possibility of connecting digital and analog sensors, using the same pinout of Arduino but with the power and capabilities of Raspberry.
The current tutorial explains how to take the most of the Galileo board by using on it the Arduino and Raspberry Pi shields and modules designed by Cooking Hacks
Galileo comes with a single-core 32-bit, 400MHz Quark SoC X1000 processor, supports 3.3 or 5 volt shields and has an Ethernet and USB port. Compatible with Windows, Mac OS and Linux, the software of Galileo also has support for the Arduino shield ecosystem.
If you are interested in Internet of Things (IoT) or M2M projects check our open source sensor platform Waspmote which counts with more than 100 sensors available to use 'off the shelf', a complete API with hundreds of ready to use codes and a low consumption mode of just 0.7µA to ensure years of battery life.
