So I’m pondering an application that would require gathering bluetooth RSSI information for any number of surrounding android devices quickly (< 1 second per device, preferably faster) and continuously. It podría pair with the devices as long as that pairing doesn’t require any user interaction or previous interaction between the phones.
I don’t have any prior experience with bluetooth, just the reading I’ve done over the last couple of days; I’m looking for a little direction.
What are the options for this, if any? It looks like someone is doing something similar aquí with iOS and BLE. I could accept BLE as a limitation if that drastically simplifies things.

You can collect the RSSI like that on Android during an inquiry:
BluetoothDevice device = intent.getParcelableExtra(BluetoothDevice.EXTRA_DEVICE); short rssi = intent.getShortExtra(BluetoothDevice.EXTRA_RSSI, (short) 0);
But be carefull, some devices do not support reading the RSSI.
