This paper presents a software bridge connecting Bluetooth devices and the UPnP network using a virtual agent, which aims at the wearable computing environment. The bridge enables a non-IP Bluetooth device to work as an IP based UPnP device. Upon discovering a Bluetooth device, the bridge registers a corresponding UPnP virtual device and automatically generates its UPnP description using the extracted information. The experimental results show that the Bluetooth device can join the UPnP network and establish its service with negligible overhead.
