Theme 3: Audio – what’s new with LE Audio
Bluetooth for Long-Range Wireless IoT Enablement
Theme 4: Range
Bluetooth is a ubiquitous, global wireless technology that enriches and simplifies a wide variety of everyday interactions between us and our mobile devices. Pretty much everyone uses it from a consumer perspective but its reach and growing use in wireless applications for industrial, commercial and medical industries has been increasing exponentially over the last 5 years. However, Bluetooth still attracts a label as a ‘short range’ wireless technology but since the advent of the Bluetooth 5 in Dec 2016, its actual performance for wide area coverage in harsh RF environments needs to be reassessed. Laird Connectivity, and its global OEM customer base, has integrated Bluetooth 5 Coded PHY capabilities into a wide range of different end products and applications over the last 24 months and this talk will review its capabilities and document real world testing to show its growing dominance as the wireless technology of choice for IoT sensor enablement.

Exploring Connectivity Trends for Bluetooth® Low Energy in the Car
Theme 5: Core Specifications 5.x Update
Connectivity’s ubiquity in the world is certainly gaining momentum in the automotive industry. Many car owners think of automotive wireless connectivity as a simple interaction with an in-car infotainment system, but new applications are emerging, whether it’s personalizing an owner’s interaction with the vehicle, creating a path for lower-power connectivity operation when in the key-off state, or providing users the experience of passive entry via phone-as-a-key (PaaK) applications.
For several years now, TI’s Bluetooth® Low Energy technology has been connecting multiple elements within the car of , including head units, tire pressure monitoring systems (TPMSs), telematics control units (TCUs), car access through PaaK and other accessories. In this session, we will talk about the trends of Bluetooth Low Energy in automotive and explore a few of these end-equipments in more detail.
