AbstractThe 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. This paper explores the feasibility of using Bluetooth devices for structural health monitoring telemetry applications. We describe the configuration of a small ad-hoc network using Bluetooth modules and micro-controllers to simulate a telemetry application and thus evaluate the general framework of distributed, reliable, and secure, wireless communications required for telemetry.
