Read battery percentage using Arduino

  • Is it possible to read battery info of an Android with an Arduino via Bluetooth without an external app on the Android side .

    For example . Bluetooth connection to a cars media player shows battery life , signal strength ,etc....

  • @vijayvarghese The answer is "NO". If my guess is correct, you might have misunderstood the working of Classic Bluetooth and Bluetooth Low Energy(BLE). You cannot acquire battery percentages, RAM usage directly just by connecting HC-05 to Arduino and connecting it to mobile phones. Because our mobile phones don't share any characteristics to outside just through Bluetooth.

    The example of car which you have stated is just applicable to the automobile field. If you are able to read the battery percentage, signal strength kind of parameters that means that the car's BLE has been programmed with those characteristics to be displayed. To be simple, it means that the Bluetooth inside the car has been given permission to display those. It depends upon the BLE configuration used and security levels. You cannot access any parameters from mobile phone just with Arduino and HC-05 Bluetooth module.

    If you want to learn more about this please read the post in makergram named "Automatic pairing of ESP32 using BLE" where @salmanfaris has given a detailed explanation of how BLE works. If you want to work out how BLE's work, try connecting your MI Band(Or any smart wrist bands) to the nRF Connect Mobile app(Can be found in play store for free). Try seeing what parameters are displayed. please write back in case of queries.!!

    @Anudeep Thanks a lot m8, I actually made a very silly mistake of including the https:// while entering FIREBASE_HOST, where I must have entered the Domain name alone and removed the https:// extension.

    Thanks again for replying that quick. Cheers.

    Hello @Palani, In the Firebase, there are two types of storage,

    Cloud Firestore (Very recent one & NoSQL database) Realtime Database (To which we upload the data using NodeMCU)

    In the Arduino Code, you can see that there is a variable named FIREBASE_AUTH.

    This variable should be assigned to the Database secret. This you can find in Project Settings -> Service accounts -> Database Secrets.

    My mistake is, i have mistakenly assigned thay to Web API key. This is found at Project Settings -> General.

    The error can also occur when u don't initialise a proper realtime database in Firebase. (This is not my case).

  • @kowshik1729 If you are using an external high-speed switch, there is only one one clock generator for both wifi and BLE and the high-speed switch you mentioned is Ultra-Wideband (UWB) 3โ€“8 GHz from its datasheet


    you also check this solution that I shared in the previous post.

    @salmanfaris said in BT and WiFi Dual Core simultaneous operation using ESP32?:

    There is a special option called โ€œSoftware controls WiFi/ Bluetooth coexistenceโ€ it can control the ESP32's Bluetooth and Wi-Fi coexistence using software, more details:
