I am looking to setup up a WiFi connection between my laptop and the ATMega328P microcontroller. The microcontroller will be affixed to a mobile robotic platform that will remain within about 50 feet (15.24 m) of the laptop (outside, in a field with maybe a few trees). It will be continuously receiving a set of xy-coordinates from the laptop.
I will be using the RN-XV WiFly Module - Wire Antenna
. KingBubbaTruck at SparkFun wrote a nice little tutorial
for interfacing the ATMega328P operating at a 5VDC supply voltage with the aforementioned antenna module operating at a 3.3 VDC supply voltage.
I am looking for feedback from someone who has implemented this (or something very similar). Just want to see if my intended application is feasible before purchasing the hardware. Also any other suggestions/recommendations are welcome and encouraged. Thank you.
