I am new to the task of building a wireless sensor network, and I have a few questions about transmitting data from a Seeeduino stalker v3 to my mac. Here is my current setup
- Seeeduino Stalker v3.0 with solar panel and battery
- Sparkfun USB XBee explorer
- 2x XBee S1 Wi-fi modules.
I have been able to configure the XBees in the X-CTU program, but I am unable to achieve communication between the XBees when one is attached to the stalker board and the other to the PC. While the stalker is directly connected to the computer, I have been able to upload sketches that return battery voltage and charge status to the serial monitor, yet when I plug in the XBees and try to upload a sketch, all I get are “avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding” errors. I would like to be able to have those same battery numbers be transmitted over the wireless XBee network. I have read through many of the tutorials (ladyada and sparkfun) but I still feel like I am missing out on what code to use. Does anyone have any step-by-step tutorials for the stalker and wifi xbees, or simple example code that they would be willing to share? Thanks in advance.
