Hi Guys ,
Let me introduce you a way to control / monitor your Arduino Project from internet.
You can connect your Ethernet cable into your Arduino Ethernet Adapter and consume one of your Arduino in the same time.
Instead , I make a software which has two main functions :
1. Web Server - which can make the communication between PC and the Internet User
2. Serial Port Communication - so the PC can talk to Arduino
In this way , the Internet User can communicate with Arduino in real time. You can control and monitor the status of Arduino via Internet. In the mean while , the PC can also save and load all the data from Arduino easily.
I have an example for this , Internet Controlled Vehicle , feel free to have a look.https://sites.google.com/site/ixacproject/
In my example , I use my laptop talk to a wireless router.
Then I use an XBee with its adapter(has a FTDI chip) to talk to the other XBee which connect to Arduino.
So , the PC and Arduino can communicate wireless.
Finally , the Internet User can talk to the Vehicle.
Feel free to let me know how do you think.
