Abstract

Wireless device development requires extensive testing of the hardware and software that is being developed. Existing technologies used to test Bluetooth systems are limited by both design constraints and high hardware costs, restricting their usefulness. This project developed and demonstrated a Bluetooth testbed addressing limitations with existing systems by taking a unique approach to data collection. The three parts of this project are: a throughput test with data logging, a firmware loading utility for the hardware used in this project, and an interface with a commercially available Software-Defined Radio.
