Bluetooth is a wireless communication protocol for exchanging data over short distances using short wavelength radio transmissions. Common devices with Bluetooth capabilities include laptops, phones, and wireless sensors.
Use the Bluetooth interface in MATLAB® to transmit and receive ASCII and binary data. This interface uses the Bluetooth Serial Port Profile (SPP). You can identify any Bluetooth SPP device and establish a two-way connection with that device from MATLAB.
To communicate with a Bluetooth device, your computer needs to have a built-in or external Bluetooth adapter. For more information, see Configure Bluetooth Communication Settings.
