Arduino <--> PC wireless communication: Hardware options?!
June 12, 2013
I think i fancy adding some wireless control to my little rover bot thing.
I fancy using an Xbox controller perhaps, or an old PC controller. I also might want to have the bot transmit some data back to the computer perhaps? therefore, I think running through a PC make the most sense.
What are my options for hardware. What are the advantages and dis advantages?
Bluetooth seems the most obvious, but i image the range is pretty poor?
WLAN looks like it has better range, but surely this would be much more complicated?
Or can i buy a Shield, and paired USB dongle for the computer?
Any offers of advice/reccomendations/experiences?
Cheers :) Olly
