Project #002: BLE Heart Rate Sensor
Presenting the second project in the 100 Projects in 100 Days series, today we demonstrate a Bluetooth Low Energy Heart Rate Sensor using the BLE Pioneer Kit.
The Bluetooth SIG defines several Standard Adopted Profiles for Bluetooth Low Energy devices. Modern operating systems (iOS, Android, Windows, etc.) have native support for these Profiles, making it very easy for Bluetooth Low Energy devices to talk to phones, tablets and laptops.
In this project, the Bluetooth Low Energy Component is configured with the Heart Rate Sensor Profile. The heart rate data is simulated for the purposes of this demo (a full HRM system design, including the sensor interface, will be posted later in another project).
