I would like to create a project where a central Nano BLE device reads information from several other peripheral Nano BLE devices. For example, 3 peripheral Nanos gather orientation data from their IMU sensors and send those analog values to the central device.
My first question would be: is it achievable to connect more than 6 Nano devices together at the moment?
The above mentioned project would be my final goal but first I would like to achieve something simpler.
What I would like to do is to read an analog integer value with one Nano device from a potentiometer, store the data in a characteristic and use another Nano to read the data. Then, I would like to be able to vary the brightness of an LED with that Nano. So, basically tuning the potentiometer at one Nano board which would control the brightness of an LED at the other Nano board.
I saw some examples like these:
both written by Klaus_K which shares the accelerometer data via BLE which can be read by a Bluetooth scanning App, but I am not sure how to enable another Nano board to read it.
I’m pretty new to this, I’ve tried experimenting with the code and checked out the ArduinoBLE library documentation but haven’t really got anywhere.
I wonder if anyone managed to get something similar done and would share an example with me?
