Bluetooth

Bluetooth is a particular type of technology used to allow a grouping of electronic devices to communicate. Bluetooth technology streamlines the process of communication by being both automatic and wireless. In order for two or more electronic devices to communicate, they have to share a system of how they will do so and how much data will be involved as they do so. Bluetooth technology works by transmitting data through low-power radio waves on a frequency of about 2.45 gigahertz. Specially designed to function at wavelength that will not interfere with other devices, Bluetooth communication uses weaker signals that require a somewhat close proximity (about 10 meters). However, Bluetooth does not require there to be a line of sight between devices like infrared communication does (such as on a remote control). Bluetooth technology is now used in a range of precision measurement tools, improving data transmission and allowing for speedy wireless communication between devices.
