Abstract [en]

With the introduction of low-power wireless technologies, new applications in the healthcare, fitness and home entertainment markets emerge through the use of ultra low-power sensors. These devices are designed to run for years on a single coin-cell battery. ANT and Bluetooth Low Energy are two low-power protocols that emerge as competitors in this market. The ability to combine these in a single system not only takes away the element of choice from the manufacturers, but also provides compatibility between the two protocols. An ANT-enabled device can be coupled to a Bluetooth network, with the benefit of connecting to non-ANT central devices, such as smartphones, tablets and laptops. In this thesis, the co-existence of these two protocols is discussed. An implementation with two distinct radios for each protocol, controlled by a single embedded microcontroller, is presented. The implementation is tested with regards to packet loss with a simple test application. Test results show that the obtained packet loss cannot be correlated to the co-existence of the two protocols.
