BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) Android + IOS 7 Hello World Apps
I would like IOS 7 and Android apps that use BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) to do the following:
o make mobile device act as a beacon with a custom message
o listens for beacons and displays their messages along with received signal strength
o should run in the background
Here is a UI mock for the app: http://bit.ly/1apZilV
Some discussion about ios 7 devices acting as beacons: http://stackoverflow.com/questions
o Make the apps available via testflight.
o Document the API calls (links in comments to Javadoc/IOS docs is fine)
o Use a private GitHub repo, which I will provide
This project is best suited for someone with IOS and Android experience. BLE experience is a big plus.
I am posting this project to learn more about BLE technology. BLE is a new cutting edge technology and this is a great opportunity for you to learn about it in an organized way.
I am flexible, e.g., if you can do the IOS side but not Android, we can work that into the contract.
By way of reference, I am a faculty member at UT Austin where I've taught and done research in algorithms and software. You can learn more about my background from my homepage, users.ece.utexas.edu/~adnan
