I am a graduate student from the Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT).
I am a Mechanical Engineer and I am a little bit lost with embedded systems... :(
I am working on the final project of my studies and I am trying to develop a trackable golf ball. I was thinking about using a Bluetooth LE device which would be allocated on the core of the ball. It should be as small and light as possible and I was wondering if it would be possible to be a cubic, spheric, cylindrical or other shape instead of flat like the regular ones, so the surface could be reduced and it would affect less to the dynamics of the ball.
Which would be the approximated minimum surface of a bluetooth LE device?
if it is possible to do it in a cubic shape what could be approximately the size of each surface?
And do you know an approximately minimum weight that could be reached for the device?
Thank you so much for your time and help.
