Using Intel Edison and Bluetooth to send Data to Intel Iot Cloud

Hi everyone,

For my project I am trying to accomplish this:

I want to connect my intel edison to an android phone via bluetooth and use the phone's 4g service or wifi to send my sensor readings to the cloud.

I have already been able to connect the intel edison to a wifi directly and send the data to the cloud. The above is the second part of my project.

Thank you,

Hello nahi,

 

 

If you would like to try this, you will have to set your Edison to receive internet connection through Bluetooth. I have never tried to do this, however I found a few links that might be of your interest:

If you go this way, you might also find issues with the API as it was intended to be used with the Wi-Fi interface, and using the Bluetooth interface might cause it to misbehave.

 

I believe a better option would be to create an AP with your phone and have the Edison connect to it. This way the Edison would get a "regular" internet connection and most of the project would remain the same without losing the mobile aspect of it (which I believe it's what you're going for).
