Mesh with Xbee
Hi and Welcome to the UL wiki on Xbee.
First of all, what is Xbee?
XBee is a wireless communication module that
built to the 802.15.4/ZigBee standard. The ZigBee wireless standard can form self-healing mesh networks.
"XBee and XBee-PRO 802.15.4 OEM RF modules are embedded solutions providing wireless end-point connectivity to devices.
These modules use the IEEE 802.15.4 networking protocol for fast point-to-multipoint or peer-to-peer networking.
They are designed for high-throughput applications requiring low latency and predictable communication timing.
XBee modules are ideal for low-power, low-cost applications. XBee-PRO modules are power-amplified versions of XBee modules for extended-range applications."
So what is Zigbee?
A wireless communications standard, which has longer range than bluetooth but lower power consumption than WiFi.
ZigBee is a low-cost, low-power,
standard. First, the low cost allows the technology to be widely deployed in wireless control and monitoring applications. Second, the low power-usage allows longer life with smaller batteries. Third, the mesh networking provides high reliability and more extensive range.
Xbee is used in conjuction with Arduino hardware.
So what is Arduino?
Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.
So what are the uses of this technology?
Uses for this Technology
Given the inherent characteristics of ZigBee protocols and devices they are extremely suited to use in embedded applications that require very low data rates and power consumption.
The following are some of the
