16  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: Finding Items in a building with lots of rooms on: April 18, 2012, 11:52:48 am
Every year at Trinity College they have a robotic contest.  The robot has to enter a series of rooms looking for a candle and extinguish the candle.  You could build a similar robot that goes from room to room looking for the items.  http://www.trincoll.edu/events/robot/  I'm not sure how else you will know where the item is.
I don't want to have a robot because it is very complicated more complicated than just you should go in all the rooms and find the item. I was thinking to put a tag on all the items and some how send the information to the database in which room it is. But I don't know how it should find out in which room it is.

Get a big pad of paper, with rows and columns ruled on it.
Every time someone takes a tagged object, strike out the old location for the tag number, and write down the new location.
If you like, have the secretary transfer the contents of the paper onto a database.
That is one way to do but I don't want to do paper work. I want it to automatically send its location to a database and find out in what room the item is in.

Hi,
I am doing a project in school and need to find a solution for my project.

I have to make a system that allows me to find missing objects in a building. I want to put a tag on the items and with a computer program find out in which room the items is instead of looking into all the rooms for the item.
Think a building like the picture below with lots of rooms. I want to find out a method for finding a missing object. If the item is in room 113 I want to see in my program that the item I am looking for is in room 113.  

Can you give me some solution on how I can solve the problem?
And what method or technology I should use? I have an Arduino with XBee module I can use.

The thing is that I want to determine the position of an object. To determine the position I need to know the signal strength.

I have a project in school which is to find in which room an object is in. So I thought I could find an object using RSSI with triangulation.

If somebody here have any advice on how I can find an missing object in a room please help me.

Please watch my post here: http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,101935.0.html

I want the RSSI value somehow.

I have two Arduino Uno with XBee Module. I need help with reading the RSSI data. I want the RSSI data to be shown on my computer.
Could somebody help me getting started.

I have already configured the XBee modules, so I can send data with the terminal on X-CTU.
I also wonder how I can send data wireless from one Arduino to the other Arduino. The problem is that I can't run my code that shows the incoming data on my Computer when I have the XBee connected to the Arduino because I have to remove the microcontroller when using XBee.
