Is it possible to change the RSSI of bluetooth?

I think it is possible to get it with "wiced_bt_dev_read_rssi()", but I couldn't find the function to set it.

Hi,

wiced_bt_dev_read_rssi() will help us to read the Received signal Strength of a Bluetooth Link. The received signal strength is depended up on various factors such as transmitting power, Tx/Rx antenna used, Environment, orientation, etc. 

I am not sure, what did you meant by change the RSSI value. If you want to change the Tx Power you can use below APIs, which will indeed affect the RSSI value read at the receiving end. 

wiced_bt_set_tx_power()

wiced_bt_ble_set_adv_tx_power()

 

Thanks,
