Robin Heydon was educated as a software engineer, graduating with a degree in Computer Science from the University of Manchester, UK. He was employed in the computer entertainment industry for a decade working on networked flight simulators. He then moved into wireless communications in 2000, working for what was then a small company called CSR. There he moved from being a firmware engineer to working as a full-time standards architect. In this work, Robin has worked on fixing and improving all versions of the Bluetooth specification. In early 2007, Robin started working on a project called Wibree, which later became the Bluetooth low energy specification. He cochaired the group, and drove through the specification to publication, and was recognized by the Bluetooth SIG as an inductee to the Bluetooth SIG Hall of Fame in 2010.
