Topic: Wireless Programming with the Arduino XBee Sheild (Read 821 times) previous topic - next topic


I am trying to enable wireless programming of an Arduino via the XBee Shield and an XBee Explorer. I've seen two tutorials online that show you how do it. However, both tutorials talk about using components to connect the receiver XBee to the Arduino. Well the XBee shield handles the communication between the receiver XBee and the Arduino, so the extra components aren't necessary (or are they). They talk about using a capacitor or transistor to be able to wirelessly reset the Arduino. Is this already possible with the XBee shield, or is there some modification I can make to it to make it possible?

I'd like to be able to use the existing Arduino IDE to program my Arduino wirelessly. Can someone shed some light on this?
