- One of the most challenging things to do on Android…when working with the internet of things…is connecting to another device using Bluetooth low energy.…So what we're gonna do is build a very simple…Bluetooth Scanner App.…It's gonna connect up to a sample peripheral…and get some notifications.…And the way this gonna work…is I've taken the Bluetooth low energy sample app…from Google that they distributed…on the developer.android.com site,…and I've stripped it down…because there's a whole bunch of extra UI type things…that make it a little bit confusing,…and we're gonna break it down and put it together…one piece at a time and have it connect up…to a very specific peripheral,…and go get a very specific characteristic…so you can see how the pieces work.…
Then you can take this framework…and use this to build an app to talk to…other Bluetooth devices of your own choosing.…So this app is gonna operate…as a Bluetooth low energy central,…meaning it's gonna scan for peripherals…that are advertising saying,…"Hey, I'm here."…
