 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Dear all,
I'm really a beginner in Contiki and Arduino, so apologize me if I say
something wrong smiley

The idea behind my project is to make some Arduino boards communicate via
IPv6 through XBee and Ethernet.
After a day of study of Contiki I learned that to realize the idea I need
to implement a radio driver for XBee and here comes the first questions:
- is it right?
- are there already some implementations of that?

Thanks in advance

Communicate with what? The XBee and Ethernet shields serve vastly different purposes.

The Ethernet library does not currently support IPv6.

What is Contiki? I don't think you need to "implement a radio driver".

The XBee is used for the communication between the boards and the ethernet is used for the communication with another system.

I know that, but with the ENC28J60 chip, with this library https://github.com/jcw/ethercard and with contiki you can use IPv6.

This is contiki http://www.contiki-os.org/
And how can you say that if you don't know contiki? smiley
