      The Bluetooth standard is intended to provide short-range (10-100 meter) wireless connectivity between mobile and desktop devices. It was developed as a replacement for short cables, and has the ability to form ad-hoc networks. A large inter-connection of piconets can be arranged to form a scatternet for data collection in a Bluetooth based structural health monitoring Telemetry network. The Bluetooth protocol architecture supports the formation of a daisy chain network. However Bluetooth technology was not intended for long daisy chain networks. In this work, we propose to evaluate the throughput and latency for data transmission in a long daisy chained Bluetooth based telemetry network.
