A Bluetooth Remote Control System
Emerging radio technologies like WLAN and Bluetooth enable electronic devices of any kind to communicate with one another. A simple and easy to implement application layer protocol called BTRC protocol was developed allowing devices to exchange data of any kind and format over different protocols like TCP/IP or Bluetooth. Based upon this protocol a universal remote control system was implemented. Software applications simulating cellular phones and personal digital assistants (PDA) were developed as remote control devices. BTRC server devices send their graphical XML based user interface to the remote control. This way the use of devices is simplified significantly.
