I'm working on a project where I need multiple ultrasonic sensors to communicate wirelessly to my computer and visually output the data in processing.
Right now I have three Arduino Fios with XBee wm2s and Maxbotix ultrasonic sensors
I have the XBee explorer from Sparkfun with my coordinator XBee plugged in to my computer.
I've been following the book Building Wireless Sensor Networks
by Robert Faludi, and I've gotten to the point where I'm building a simple sensor network with my XBees in API mode, but his example does not use the Arduino, it connects the sensor directly to a pin on the XBee.
I know that there's an API library for Arduino, and an API library for Processing, but I'm a bit of a beginner, and I need a little hand holding through the setup process.
Basically what I need is the API to identify which XBee the data is coming from, and a way to confirm that the data is less than three characters in length.
Does anyone know of a tutorial or some kind of resource or example code that I can look at that would help me get these things talking?
