Teethtracker: How to track mobile phones using bluetooth

Pretty much bang on a year ago was a pretty hectic time for me. I had lots going on, travelling for work, planning a secret wedding and hacking together something that could track 40 or so people around an indoor space.

Hi, I’m just noob to stop by here. I’m just curious that does bluetooth tower is necessary? Does mobile phones can’t search any other mobiles by itself? Like peer to peer?

Thanks for the awesome question. The bluetooth towers were just mobile phones that did peer to peer like searching. The only difference is that the towers are at known locations, and upload the other phones they see to a database tracking the movements.
