    Where did the bt_smartbridge demo go in 3.3.1?

      It also appears that the API calls used by this demo in 3.1.2 are now missing.

       

      Thanks,

          The documentation segment from the 3.2.1 SDK on Bluetooth is also missing from the 3.3.1 SDK.

          Is 3.3.1 intended as an intermediary release, or has there been some major shift in strategy for Bluetooth support? There is nothing in the release notes that indicates deprecation of major bluetooth functionality.

            Does this work?

              What is missing from this implementation that we were leveraging in the 3.2.1SDK is access to the wl_bss_info_t structure that contains the signal_strength of the packet where we hear the bluetooth device chirping.   We have an application that collects RSSI and uses the information to ascertain location of bluetooth devices.

               

              I have not studied this new (3.3.1) implementation closely, but the library code does not access this information when collecting bluetooth transmissions.  The code elsewhere in the SDK that does reference/collect this data seems to be related to to the WIFI transmissions on access points.

               

              If there is some way to get at the RSSI data on bluetooth packets we can redevelop our app using this methodology, otherwise we have to stay pinned on the 3.2.1 SDK or see if we can port its code that provided our support to the 3.3.1 SDK.
