Project #010: BLE GAP Observer

Having learned how to create BLE GAP Peripherals, Centrals and Broadcasters, today we demonstrate how to use the BLE Pioneer Kit as a GAP Observer device.

Recall, a GAP Observer is a BLE device that constantly scans for nearby Advertising devices, can read the Advertisement and Scan Response Packets from these devices, but can not establish further connections.

A good application use case of a GAP Observer could be in the case of a BLE virtual fence, which sits and observes for nearby devices. Another application use-case could be that of an iBeacon scanner.

This example also includes a UART Component that will be for debugging purposes. The UART simply displays the result of the scanned Advertisement and Scan Response Packets from nearby BLE devices that the Observer sees.
