Texas Instruments Releases Sensor Tag App and SDK for Developers
|Stuart Parkerson in Mobile Tech Monday, July 29, 2013|
Coinciding with the Jellybean 4.3 release by Google last week, Texas Instruments has announced the availability of the Bluetooth Smart SensorTag app for Android. Jelly Bean 4.3 introduced native support of Bluetooth Smart Ready, which allows equipment to run for years on a single coin cell battery because of it's low energy consumption.
The CC2541 SensorTag is the first Bluetooth Smart development kit focused on wireless sensor applications and it is the only development kit targeted for smart phone app developers. The SensorTag can be used as reference design and development platform for a variety of smart phone accessories.
Through a simple interface consumers can use a Bluetooth low energy enabled Android or iOS smartphone/tablet to configure and read data from the 6 different sensor on the SensorTag. The software on this page gives access to example source codes for both Android and iOS apps in order to get started to create your own applications using TI’s Bluetooth low energy technology. In addition the Android application package file can be installed and run on an Android device with Bluetooth 4.0 support to communicate with the SensorTag. Additionally, the Windows installer for SensorTag Android app source code will become available soon.
