I have recently made a sketch that uses an arduino uno with an ethernet shield attached to a router to interact wirelessly with my iPad/iphone using TouchOSC. It allows control of various microscope functions.
I hoped I could dispense with the ethernet shield and router by using a wireless shield and XBEE. Having spent a bit of time trawling through the internet, I now wonder if this will work.
Can someone tell me whether an XBEE and wireless shield can be configured as a wireless ethernet device that could communicate directly with iPhone/ipad? I don't want to use a computer intermediary.
I since found that there is a wifi shield on the market which I guess does exactly what I want but since I have already purchased the XBEE, I thought I would ask in case there is a way of using it.
If it is possible, can you suggest which library might be a good starting point.
I am currently using the following libraries so if I can use the same ones, it would be great:
#include <Ethernet.h> // Tested in version IDE 0022 Arduino UNO
