Abstract: In this paper, we present the first reported Bluetooth technology solution so-called 'BlueThunder'. The proposed solution represents an excellent blossom in the Bluetooth wireless field. It solves the incompatibility problems between devices, and, simultaneously, assures the reliability of the data streaming and enhances the quality of the transformed data via wireless technology. It can be used with every device that supports USB/UART's ports and an ad hoc smart radio system. The usage of some universal protocols and profiles, the implementation of new software on the chip, and the application on various devices from different manufactures have been maximally utilised in our presented BlueThunder technology. The results clearly demonstrate the applicability of the proposed solution by reporting a perfect performance of the audio streaming between incompatible devices modelled by two parked cars separated by a distance of two to five metres.
