I am totally new to Arduino. May not get the terminology exactly right...
I want to develop an Arduino based Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) running speed sensor. This "classification" of device has an existing SIG specification UUID BLE_UUID_RUNNING_SPEED_AND_CADENCE 0x1814, as best I can tell. If I understand it, that is a pre-defined specification to tell the central device what the peripheral is sending.
**Where do I begin? **
Is there a tutorial that would show me how to setup the board to broadcast, pair and transmit?
I have downloaded the Arduino IDE and see that there is a setup() and loop() for initialization and recurring processing. So, to get started, I want to:
Initialize the BLE peripheral device as a running speed sensor.
Advertise the device to BLE central devices.
Pair the devices.
Stream a constant (5 MPH)
I am assuming that somehow I have to use setAdvertisedServiceUuid() or similar in the setup() to initialize the device as a running speed sensor, then do a setAdvertisingInterval() or similar to start broadcasting the device. Then, somehow connect() and stream data using notify() or similar.
Any help will be appreciated.
