I would like to know if the following setup will do the trick:I would like to use an arduino fio in combination with an Xbee module that will comminucate with an another XBee connected to my computer with an Xbee explorer serial to usb.
I will process to signal and use an analog input of the Fio, sample my signal
and then transmit it to the XBee plugged in my computer.
So, since I have never used any if these components, I would like to know if the programming of the Fio and the Xbee is relatively simple
are there known problems I should be aware of
is the serial data easily retreivable from an Xbee
is the wireless programming of the Fio with the Xbee reliable
Is mesh network programming still complicated if there is only one node communicating to my computer?
Also, is there a way in the Arduino software to show the data I will receive from the Fio/Xbee in real-time (well, almost real-time)?
