A practical real-time mobile auction system must fulfill diverse constraints. In "Cellular Network for Real-Time Mobile Auction", we described a mobile auction system implemented with 433 MHz band modems. Nowadays, that system has become a standard in the Galician fish markets, which include the most important fishing port in Europe, Vigo (Spain). Although our system has been performing satisfactorily for four years, it is obvious that new technologies such as Bluetooth and IEEE 802.11 have shaped the wireless market and deserve our attention. In this paper, we evaluate Bluetooth in the context of real-time mobile auctions. As a result, we propose a novel approach to implement mobile auction systems by exploiting the park mode in Bluetooth specifications, which may also be useful for other remote-command applications with hard real-time constraints.
