In comparison to today’s consumer products that offer enhanced connectivity and a more immersive user experience through innovative wireless Human-Machine Interface (HMI) designs, industrial products continue to employ physical interfaces typically featuring HMIs that rely on small displays or simple LEDs and resort to electromechanical switches or pushbuttons as their primary means of interaction.

By using modern, standards-driven wireless technologies, such as Bluetooth, designers have access to new tools that can help transform the user experience for industrial devices. This paper explores how leveraging Bluetooth in industrial devices can transform the user experience and improve product lifetime value.
