Demo for periodic advertising. This requires two devices to run. Both devices run the same program. They attempt to find each other after which they adopt complementary roles. One sets up periodic advertising. The other attempts to scan and sync with the periodic advertising.
The role of the scanner device can also be performed by a BLE scanner on a smartphone. Connect to the advertiser. This will establish it as the advertiser. After you disconnect the device will begin periodic advertising. The canonical source for this example lives at https://github.com/ARMmbed/mbed-os-example-ble/tree/master/BLE_PeriodicAdvertising
