RS-232 Wireless comms with XRF radio

Hey peeps

My first post in a very long time...

I've got a project on the go at the moment, gonna post it as a robot soon, which is a robotic dragon quadruped called Dimitri (not sure why, but I like it)

Since an Arduino isn't clever enough to do all the things I'd like this robot to do, I'm gonna have most of its brain inside my laptop and communicate wirelessly.

I'm having problems getting a connection with my current setup, here's a photo:

Bluetooth on Smartphones PLUS and Xbee receiver on Robot

Hello,

I have a another Question for all of you guys :D

 

Q: CAN I Control via Blutooth on SmartPhones using Xbee Reciever on Arduino Robot...,? 

OR it is POSSIBLE to Control the Xbee on Robot via Bluetooth on SmartPHONES...,?

If It can be,..., HOW ? and please Help me by Teaching me about it :D

 

Please Answer Prayer :D

Bluetooth and XBEE

Hi, I am working on a project that includes contolling a robot wirelessly though visual basic 2010. And I was researching and found that if you use an xbee it is the same code as when using a usb cord. But i want to use bluetooth instead. And I was wondering if the code is the same when using bluetooth (like the xbee). I assume that it is the same because it is a form of RF. But I need to know from LMR if it is the same code with Bluetooth or is it different.

Thanks,

Micro Magician robot controller - I can finally tick the project complete box!

I started designing this controller in December 2011. After 4 months and 2 previous revisions it will finally be shipping out April 2012. I think this is DAGU's best Arduino compatible robot controller yet!

Designed for small robots using small batteries, the Micro Magician is a 3.3V controller running at 8MHz.
Working from 4.5V to 9V means this constroller can run from a single LiPo cell or 3x NiMh batteries.
Reverse polarity protection means no blue smoke if you get your power wires crossed (reverse polarity diode rated at 3A).

This is really just a reworking of my Ardbot, where I've replaced the Arduino with the (awesome) Gadget Gangster Propellor Platform USB … Read more

Arduino Xbee shield problem

 

I am trying to communicate between 2 arduinos using 2 xbee shields. I am trying to configure the Xbee shield with PAN ID, address etc. I am using X-CTU utility on a windows 7 64 bit operating system. I am able to configure one of the XBee modules with all the necessary parameters. I am not able to repeat the same for the other module.

This is my first robot. I was inspired to start creating after seeing the Yellow Drum Machine by Frits, and I originally was building a drum robot. After … Read more

XBee interference issues, looking for substitutes

Hi all,

 

I'm building a robot which is currently wirelessly connected via XBee Pro and has an onboard 2.4 GHz pin hole camera.

The problem is that the XBee's signal is often degraded when the camera is working.

I've tried out the codes using a wired connection and all is good.

 

Thus, I'm looking for a wireless replacement for connecting the robot to the PC. Any suggestions are welcomed :)
