- It's time to roll up our sleeves and do a little looking at the actual innards of connecting to an Internet of Things device. The Internet of Things will be "A world-wide network "of interconnected objects uniquely addressable, "based on standard communication protocols." This is from W. David Stephenson's Smart Stuff: an introduction to the internet of things. As we've talked about at great lengths so far, we can connect up to our things using the Apple Core Bluetooth API and TCP/IP, using wired and WiFi APIs.
So, we're going to talk next about Core Bluetooth, what does it mean to be a central and a peripheral, and then we're actually going to build two apps, both of which can run on your iOS device. One that's a Bluetooth scanner, so that you can see whatever Bluetooth devices you might have in the room, and discover information about them. The other is a Bluetooth peripheral. If you have two iOS devices, you can create one as the central and one as the peripheral, and scan and find the exact device, say your old iPad that's operating as a peripheral, that you can use to create your own thing.
So, let's roll up our sleeves and get started.
