In recent years, "IoT" or "Wearable" are one of buzzwords, so many people might have interests in building hardware products. But learning how to develop electric circuits, mechanical systems or embedded systems etc. from zero is so difficult. However, iOS developers can contribute to projects of hardware products with the knowledge of Core Bluetooth / Bluetooth Low Energy (BTLE), even if they are not familiar with hardware layer. In this session, he will introduce BTLE, show easy examples of Core Bluetooth, and share knowledges with his experiences developing more than 10 apps for IoT and Wearable products.

  • What is Bluetooth Low Energy? Why use this?
  • Very easy examples of how to communicate using Core Bluetooth
  • What part was my responsibility in the projects? Communication with firmware engineer.
  • Designing GATT
  • Designing the behavior of the app in background
    • Limitations in background. What are possible and impossible?
    • State Preservation and Restoration
  • Develop without prototypes of the hardware
    • BTLE Module's Developer Kit
    • Prototyping tools
    • Build emulator apps
  • Trouble Shootings
    • Debugging tools
    • Each cases: Can't find / connect / send or receive information
