A missing piece in tapping the power of the Internet of Things (IoT) is a low-cost fixed gateway that can connect all the great home and business automation devices to the internet and the cloud. The Raspberry Pi is emerging as an ideal platform for this and Plugable adapters can help make it happen.
Our Bluetooth white paper discusses the importance of Bluetooth low energy (LE) technology in realizing the IoT, and the Bluetooth SIG and its committees have been working hard on an open standard for a very low-cost gateway using Bluetooth LE. They have just released a white paper on this, along with tutorial for building such a gateway using the Raspberry Pi.
