What is the difference between the Duemilanove and the Arduino Uno? Except for the price?
Herefore i would need a wireless Xbee shield, is this correct?
But do i need a receiving unit as well?
And if yes, would i need 6 or can just 1 receiver work for all accelerometers?
Also, would the Xbee requiere that there is a wifi connection available?
QuoteAnd if yes, would i need 6 or can just 1 receiver work for all accelerometers? You are connecting the accelerometers to the Arduino, not the XBee, aren't you? If so, then you need one XBee with shield per Arduino.
In order to connect sensors to the board i would need to solder or use a breadboard right?
But would i need also one receiver unit on the laptop side per accelerometer?
QuoteIn order to connect sensors to the board i would need to solder or use a breadboard right? No, but a breadboard makes the wiring a lot neater.QuoteBut would i need also one receiver unit on the laptop side per accelerometer?Draw yourself a picture. There are 6 accelerometers connected to one Arduino (maybe - you need to see if that is even possible. Which pins do your accelerometers connect to?). The Arduino then sends data to one XBee to transmit.It should be trivial to figure out how many (1, one, less than 2, just slightly more than zero) receivers you need.
I will NOT be connecting 6 accelerometers to one arduino. Each sensor has it's own board.
From the documentation i found that one receiver can receive from more than one transmitter.
