How to control many Arduinos with XBee Pro and Seeeduino-Stalker?

Hello

I have solar panels tracking project and would like to monitor and control the Arduinos on each solar panel. We have 24 Units means 24 Arduino Uno kits. Would like to use Seeeduino-Stalker V3 (http://www.seeedstudio.com/wiki/index.php?title=Seeeduino-Stalker_v3&uselang=en#Applications) for Real Time monitoring and control through XBee Pro module (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/8742)

I have 24 pcs Arduino Uno , one pc Seeeduino-Stalker V3, One pc UartSBee v4, 6 pin dual female jumper cable and one pc XBee-PRO RF module.

Any advice if this in enough and how should be all connected? Thanks

25 computers and two radios is not the right ratio.

Are all the arduinos going to be wired/connected to a single x-bee transceiver?

What do you mean 25 computers and two radios is not the right ratio???

The goal is that all the arduinos to receive data from one single XBee pro.

The goal is that all the arduinos to receive data from one single XBee pro.

You might try connecting all the arduino rx pins to the xbee tx pin, and connect all grounds together. Then send commands that are specific to the individual arduinos such that the desired arduino acts on the command and the other arduinos ignore the command.

No. All the arduinos are not going to be wired/connected to a single x-bee transceiver? Would like to control 24 Solar panels (means 24 Arduinos) with one Seeeduino-Stalker V3, one UartSBee v4 and one XBee Pro module (XBee Pro 60mW Wire Antenna - Series 1 (802.15.4)). Is that possible, and how?

Which Arduino/solar panel, of the 24, is going to have the XBee attached to it?

Is that a question or a statement? If it is a question, then the answer is yes they are.

If it is a statement, how do you intend to get data from the 23 Arduinos that don’t have radios to the one that does?

Is that possible

Not as you’ve described things so far.

Ok. So for just beginning I would like to try to control (monitor) one Arduino with Seeeduino-Stalker V3 (http://www.seeedstudio.com/wiki/index.php?title=Seeeduino-Stalker_v3&uselang=en#Applications) and XBee Pro module (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/8742) .

So basically one Arduino Uno , one Seeeduino-Stalker V3, one UartSBee v4, 6 pin dual female jumper cable and one pc XBee-PRO RF module.Do I need a XBee receiver for Arduino site? Which software also do I need?

use the forum search box in the upper right side of this page and search for xbee. You should see many xbee post of which many should have information and code.

Why not just buy 24 xbees and have the coordinator broadcast to all addresses (High-0 Low-FFFF)? Anyone with a budget for 24 solar panels should have the budget for 24 xbees lol. Probably get a good deal on em. Unless these are like tiny panels...
