Open source Bluetooth proximity marketing

October 16, 2009

Time to share knowledge and ideas…
This is my first post, I hope it can be useful to people¬† interested¬† in Bluetooth “spam”.

The first release of opushd is out, feedbacks and patches are welcome. Basically it works as a proxy between BlueZ and obex-client. More important than this daemon is select good hardware and set up the Bluetooth adapters properly. In order to improve the efficiency, don’t forget to disable name resolution and reduce the page timeout.

Major features:

  • multiple adapters support;
  • filter based on MAC address for testing purpose;
  • filter based on device major classes;
  • black listing;
  • white listing (testing purpose);
  • configurable simultaneous connections per adapter.
