need help regarding xbee
« on: January 22, 2009, 01:59:39 AM »
hi.im thinking of building a robot with xbee links.the idea is that the robot will receive data from sensors which it will then send via the xbee attached to its sensors, to another xbee which will be connected to a pc via its usb module and will display received data in real time.the sending and receiving part i can manage.but my problem is displaying the data from the received module, in the pc in real time.is it possible with the following xbee usb module and the x-ctu software provided with it?

i want to use this xbee module http://www.trossenrobotics.com/store/p/5200-XBee-1mW-Communication-Module.aspx

and this xbee explorer usb module http://www.trossenrobotics.com/store/p/5828-XBee-Explorer-USB.aspx

You can use the xctu software to display incoming data to the pc. The problem is that it will display ALL recieved data. If you want a nice application you can make one in visual studio. Making a serial port with visual studio is easy (so i heard).
Good luck!
