I need some help with XBee modules - the 1mW ones (XB24 in X-CTU).
I bought 2 of them a while back from Active Robots here in the UK and they are working great. Whilst the range is a lot less than advertised, they mostly do the job.
Here is where I need help; I currently have one XBee tethered to the PC with a Parallax USB XBee Breakout Board, and the other is mounted on my robot with a Parallax 3.3v/5v XBee Breakout Board. I am now rebuilding my old Sparky robot, and plan on retrofitting him with an XBee radio. I wish to have both of the robots able to communicate with each other and the PC (mesh networking I believe), rather than having them send a message to the PC which then sends it back to the robot which it is intended for (point to multi-point networking)
I know this is possible with ZigBees, but I only have XBees.
Hopefully someone has experience of this to some degree and can offer their guidance.
