This application was tested successfully on several real life Java-enabled mobile phones, and is capable of building large scatternets, but its only practical when routes are less than 3 nodes long.Bluejacking is the sending of unsolicited messages over Bluetooth to Bluetooth-enabled devices such as mobile phones, PDAs or laptop computers, sending a v Card which typically contains a message in the name field (i. , for bluedating or bluechat) to another Bluetooth-enabled device via the OBEX protocol.
Using this approach, it is possible to join together numerous piconets into a large scatternet, and to expand the physical size of the network beyond Bluetooth's limited range.
Currently there are very few actual implementations of scatternets due to limitations of Bluetooth and the MAC address protocol.
However, there is a growing body of research being conducted with the goal of developing algorithms to efficiently form scatternets.
Scatternets can also be used to enable ad hoc communication and interaction between autonomous robots and other devices.
Several papers exist that propose algorithms for scatternet formation, This application's main purpose is to facilitate parallel computations over Bluetooth scatternets, using an MPI-style message passing paradigm.
