    Gatttool or BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) samples

    drazvan

      Hello everyone,

       

      I would like to use the Edison to control a few external Bluetoooth Low Energy devices (namely a couple of Tethercell batteries - see Tethercell ). Bluez should come with a tool called "gatttool" that allows command-line access to reading/writing BLE characteristics but it doesn't appear to be present on the Edison. Are there any other options when it comes to Bluetooth Low Energy? I am aware of bluetoothctl, I've used it and it works fine, but it doesn't appear to work for BLE, it's for Bluetooth Classic connections.

       

      Any ideas? Thank you!
