Atlantik Elektronik’s CSR Mesh aims to place smartphones at the center of the Internet of Things (IoT), allowing for an almost unlimited number of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) enabled devices to be networked together and controlled directly from a single smartphone, tablet, or PC. Optimized for smart home and IoT applications, CSR Mesh doesn’t have the limited range or required hub of similar technologies. Its protocol uses BLE to send messages to other BLE-enabled devices in the network, which in turn send them onward. Messages can be addressed to individual devices or groups of devices and devices can belong to more than one group. The CSR Mesh development kit will include evaluation boards, Android and iOS application source code, and access to binary CSR Mesh libraries.
