Sensors for Industry Conference


This paper describes a new BluetoothTM-based wireless implementation of a mobile sensor. The solution reduces dramatically both power consumption and size of a wireless sensor improving earlier BluefoothTM implementations where multi-chip solutions were used and mobility was not supported. Three different implementations from multi-chip to single chip are described with the sensor wireless interface, the architecture, protocols and algorithms used. Achieved results are: (I) Implementation of 1 chip solution wireless sensor using the internal BluetoothTM module ADC for external sensing purposes. (2) Mobile sensor wireless monitoring with BluetoothTM.
