How can one achieve many to one wireless communication without data loss using RF? assuming there are 4 transmitters sending data to a single receiver wont the packets be lost? I'm looking at making a wireless quiz buzzer - the kind you have to be the first to press to answer a question. I want to take this one step forward with 4 switches(assuming 4 options are the maximum in a quiz of this sort) and the user can directly answer a question by pressing a switch.
Here is what i was thinking 4 transmitters with their own encoders and separate addresses 1 receiver with 4 decoders mapped to 4 different addresses OR 4 receivers with 4 decoders mapped to 4 different addresses and an Arduino reading the output from the 4 decoders?
Will this work? is there a way to do this with IR?
