  1. 1. Bluetooth SIG Proprietary and Confidential 1Bluetooth SIG Proprietary and Confidential 1 Click to edit Master title style Click to edit Master subtitle style Appcessories Bridging the Digital to the Physical
  2. 2. Bluetooth SIG Proprietary and Confidential 2Bluetooth SIG Proprietary and Confidential 2 What’s In It For Me? • Understand the opportunity – Great potential for growth and monetization with appcessories – Bluetooth technology‟s role • What a sample Bluetooth implementation looks like – From „profiles‟ and use cases to code • Where to find more resources – Hint:
  3. 3. Bluetooth SIG Proprietary and Confidential 3Bluetooth SIG Proprietary and Confidential 3 Digital and Physical Worlds Collide!
  4. 4. Bluetooth SIG Proprietary and Confidential 4Bluetooth SIG Proprietary and Confidential 4 Appcessories = Application + Accessory They are complementary devices that enable people to interact with technology like never before by creating physical experiences to strengthen the digital experience What Is An Appcessory? MobiPlex - SwingTIP What makes Bluetooth a good fit for Appcessories?  Performance  THE Standard for device connectivity
  5. 5. Bluetooth SIG Proprietary and Confidential 5Bluetooth SIG Proprietary and Confidential 5 1,000,000,000 Devices* Why Should I Care? 1,000,000,000x Applications * 2012 ANALYSIS OF THE BLUETOOTH MARKET AND INDUSTRY, ABI Research
  6. 6. Bluetooth SIG Proprietary and Confidential 6Bluetooth SIG Proprietary and Confidential 6 Let Me Share a Story…
  7. 7. Bluetooth SIG Proprietary and Confidential 7Bluetooth SIG Proprietary and Confidential 7 Bluetooth – Bridging the Gap App for the Phone Sensor-based device for the Lock For the Connection • Well defined specs and protocols • Standard way to implement solutions
  8. 8. Bluetooth SIG Proprietary and Confidential 8Bluetooth SIG Proprietary and Confidential 8 Smart Device Profiles – Defining the Use Cases A Generic Attribute Profile (GATT) is a description of how a device functions for a given scenario/use case Generic Attribute Profile Service Value Characteristic Value Value Value Characteristic Value Value First thing we need to do is to define the use cases…
  9. 9. Bluetooth SIG Proprietary and Confidential 9Bluetooth SIG Proprietary and Confidential 9 Profile for the Lock Mechanism What is your use case? Let’s focus on the Password-enabled scenario Admin User Lock Turn ‘on’ PWD PWD ‘on’ AK Change PWD Send Admin PWD Admin PWD Send Good/Bad New User PWD Send User PWD Change AK In this flow, we will assume that the Admin PWD given is correct Encrypted Encrypted • We want an admin to be able to turn passwords on/off • We want an admin to be able to send an ‘admin’ password, which can then be used to set the ‘user’ password
  10. 10. Bluetooth SIG Proprietary and Confidential 10Bluetooth SIG Proprietary and Confidential 10 Service Definition for the Lock Mechanism High-level sample profile Lock Mechanism Profile Lock Service Yes Locked … Code Service ON Status 12345 User Code 54321 Admin Code • Use case scenarios are important to define – Design decisions are important to your scenario(s) – Lock Service – is it simply a toggle? – Code Service – are we covering all of the right use cases? • Quick word on Adopted Profiles… – Proximity is an example – Contains a „link loss‟, an „immediate alert level‟, and a „transmit power‟ service – Can easily add those services to your „custom‟ profile‟.
  11. 11. Bluetooth SIG Proprietary and Confidential 11Bluetooth SIG Proprietary and Confidential 11 Attribute Tables for Lock Mechanism Handle Type Value Permissions 1 «Primary Service» «Code Service» -- 2 «Status» {r/w, 3, «Value for Status»} Read/Write 3 «Value for Status» “ON” -- 4 «User Code» {r/w, 5, «Value for Code»} Read/Write 5 «Value for Code» “12345” -- 6 «Admin Code» {r/w, 7, «Value for Code»} Read/Write 7 «Value for Code» “54321” -- • Smart Device stores Service data in an Attribute Table – Implemented on the actual Smart Device to store data • Structure defined by GATT – Every entry in the table is considered an attribute – Service, Characteristic, Value, etc
  12. 12. Bluetooth SIG Proprietary and Confidential 12Bluetooth SIG Proprietary and Confidential 12 Smart Ready Platforms and Profiles When creating apps for modern smartphone platforms, many Bluetooth details are abstracted away by the underlying SDK • In many cases, still requires knowledge of the profile. • Each platform has their own SDK and are a bit different – Microsoft, Apple, Blackberry, Google • Refer to the SDK docs of the platform you are targeting Generic Attribute Profile Service Value Characteristic Value Value Value Characteristic Value Value
  13. 13. Bluetooth SIG Proprietary and Confidential 13Bluetooth SIG Proprietary and Confidential 13 • Smart Device Discovery Typical Bluetooth Application Flow Smart Device Advertises Itself Smart Ready Hub Scans for Advertisements Smart Ready Hub requests a Connection Smart Device accepts Connection request • Smart Device Connection to Smart Ready Hub
  14. 14. Bluetooth SIG Proprietary and Confidential 14Bluetooth SIG Proprietary and Confidential 14 • Interacting with Services Typical Bluetooth Application Flow – Smart Ready Hub can look at services and the values they contain in Smart Devices – Smart Ready Hub can send commands to the Smart Device services – Smart Ready Hub can receive commands and updates from the Smart Device • Requires the services to be configured properly on the Smart Device
  15. 15. Bluetooth SIG Proprietary and Confidential 15Bluetooth SIG Proprietary and Confidential 15 Lockitron – Not Just a Story • Turn your mobile phone into a key. • Send permanent or temporary virtual keys to family, friends and house guests. • Your mobile phone can be better than a key – keep it in your pocket. Keyless entry with your phone – Bluetooth low energy – “…the only wireless technology we can keep on for extended periods and is integrated directly into mobile phones.” – “With Bluetooth low energy, we can carry out commands without the user tapping the app.” Cameron Robertson, Founder
