Made some progress last night, and I think I am ready to tackle more remote xbee experiments. I'll use the following from Tom Igoe, Dan Shiffman, and Rob Faludi, plus the Xbee terminal sketch in Tom's book. Waiting on a login from Sensorbase.
UPDATE: May require that you upgrade firmware on your Xbee modules. Since I have a Mac, and the firmware upgrade tools are Windows-only, I will have to dig up my work PC or go to Parallels for continued work on this. See XBee Firmware Upgrade for info about X-CTU. The hardware setup for this is simplified in Igoe's book. Buy it.Posted by Dave at November 29, 2008 01:52 PM
