Detect a Bluetooth beacon

Solved!
Go to solution

I have a compact computer with Bluetooth and trying to detect that a unit sends beacons. I don't need to connect, just read the UUID (in a quick way).. 

I am using Labview 2020.

 

Does anyone has a idea of how this can be done?

LabVIEW has no native support for BLE. You can try this library: https://github.com/prabubharathi85/LabVIEW-BLE-Driver

If that doesn't work you'll have to create your own library, probably using the Windows API API (https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/uwp/devices-sensors/bluetooth-low-energy-overview).

I've never used them but there are several Bluetooth functions in the Data Communications/Protocols/Bluetooth palette.

Yes. I have tested them all but no one seens to detect BLE beacons. I need the beacon and the UUID.

Thanx! I made some quick tests and I can see the beacons. I will test the package of vi:s more.

Thanx again.
