Abstract

An issue that many of us have with flash drives is that we use them in a computer, or put them down, then walk away and never see them again. This project tests the concept of using Bluetooth hardware and software, and a rechargeable battery, in a flash drive paired with a phone app to be able to locate a flash drive in Bluetooth range. The initial concept was to have a Bluetooth app to tell the user when it could detect a flash drive. The concept is feasible but to develop a viable product a small printed circuit board with a small pin-count microcontroller would be needed to operate and control the Bluetooth and battery charging processes.
