Details:

There’s a compelling business case for the smart building. Building regulations and energy efficiency regulations are driving the adoption of advanced technologies in sophisticated smart building systems.

Bluetooth mesh is a new Bluetooth technology which allows secure networks of thousands of devices to be formed and one of the primary applications that Bluetooth mesh was created for is the truly smart, connected building. It was designed from the outset with reliability, security and scalability as key goals and with the ability to meet the sophisticated and technically challenging engineering requirements of the smart building and smart industry.

Lights form a permanently powered, natural processing and communications grid and visionaries from the world of commercial lighting are predicting that Bluetooth mesh lighting systems will evolve to become a distributed platform for all manner of smart building services, many having nothing to do with lighting itself.

This session will explore the concepts, technicalities and uses of Bluetooth mesh networking and how this next evolution of the ubiquitous, standards-based technology, reknowned for its cross-vendor interoperability, will make the biggest initial impact in the commercial and industrial space by enabling smart lighting as a platform.

Speaker Profile:

Martin Woolley is an industry veteran with over 30 years’ experience working with computers large, small and... getting smaller. He still has a Sinclair ZX81 somewhere.

He was a part of the BBC micro:bit team and designed the micro:bit’s Bluetooth profile. When Martin first discovered Bluetooth low energy it struck him as a phenomenally useful and developer-friendly technology and a perfect fit for this age of the Internet of Things. Bluetooth mesh networking will take this to the next level.

Martin is the Bluetooth SIG's Developer Relations Manager for the EMEA region and is responsible for informing, educating and supporting developers in the region.
