Bluetooth is widely seen as the global dominant short range wireless connectivity solution. It has universal penetration in the mobile device space and is widely integrated in personal computers as well as accessories, wearables, consumer electronics, many smart home products, smart toys, consumer robots, cars, tags, beacons, and more. The move to combo chipsets incorporating Bluetooth with Wi-Fi, NFC, GPS, 802.15.4, and FM radio, the evolution of the standard to Bluetooth Smart and Bluetooth Smart Ready and now Bluetooth 5.0, and the addition of TCP/IP and mesh networking capabilities, seems to have set the stage to continue Bluetooth’s expansion into new markets for low-power, sensor-based applications and consumer markets alike.
