thanks alot Paul!
now i can see what i need to do.
i guess I ll get some stuff from the Sparkfun!!
really good to know Bluetooth sucks!

thanks!
2  Using Arduino / Networking, Protocols, and Devices / Arduino Uno - Xbee connection on: June 17, 2013, 06:40:42 pm
Hi All,

I have a Uno with 6 analog sensors connected to my laptop via USB.
Im getting many values from the sensors, and I have a max patch to map the values to many different things.
so pretty much i am receiving data from the sensors, im not sending anything.

now i want to make this wirelessly. I looked up online and found out Xbee.
so my questions are

1. do i need xBee shield for UNO to connect Xbee to UNO? or without the shield, can i just solder them together?

2. Do i need 2 xbee to send a signal from UNO and receive the signal at my laptop?

all i need is getting data from the sensors wirelessly..
if you have other suggestions like using Arduino WIFI shield, please let me know.
HELP!!!!

thanks

Personally I would use Xbee. 

Using Xbees is as simple as calling Serial.println().  If you are already sending data via USB I assume you are just making the same calls.



Thanks alot~ i ll look up Xbees more!

i have read all posting about wireless connection,but i didnt really get it...

i have a Arduino Uno that has 6 sensors, and it sends out some numbers to my laptop through USB.
i dont send any data to my arduino, so it is just a pretty simple circuit.
but now i want to make it work wirelessly.

the distance between my arduino and my laptop will be around 50 feet.
i want to minimize latency as well.
im using a Macbook.

i found xbee, sd shield, wifi.. etc. i couldnt decide which one works best for my project.

please help!

thanks!!
