(April 2014) Bluetooth 4.1 will directly connect devices to Cloud services
“It’s not only connecting sensors to phones, tablets or hubs, but in essence talking to infrastructure in bigger ways,” said Suke Jawanda, chief marketing officer of the standards-setting Bluetooth Special Interest Group. “The scenarios become interesting for remote monitoring and management.”
For instance, data captured from health monitors could be dispatched directly to a cloud service, which can send automatic alerts to doctors or relatives if the readings are a concern, according to Jawanda.
Bluetooth 4.1 devices will also be able to serve as hubs. So, for instance, a cyclist could transfer speed and distance data from a bicycle directly to a smartwatch and other connected device.
