An investigation into Dynamic Bluetooth Mesh

Audyse Technology is currently developing a Bluetooth communication system to be embedded into personal protective equipment for people who work in environments with consistent noise, this includes factory workers, construction, land scaping, as well as recreational activities such as motorcycling. Current Bluetooth provides point to point connections and can generally support two (sometimes three) devices connected at once. This will not work for scenarios where multiple people need to talk to each other at once and are spread out over a range that standard Bluetooth will not work. Through this research project, Audyse hopes to determine the usability of Dynamic Bluetooth Mesh for usage in short-ranged device to device communications in environments where multiple devices are communicating between themselves and where the mesh can be used to expand the range and improve connectivity between the users.
