I need to develop a project where the Arduino collects data remotely (not connected to a computer) onto a data logger. The data logger needs to be accessible remotely using an Xbee radio. In other words, it will have two parts a remote module and reader.
Remote Module- will have an Arduino, sensor, xbee radio and data logger connected together. Reader- will be my laptop, Arduino and xbee radio to read the data from the data logger as I walk by.
I wanted to please ask:
It looks like the xbee radio requires the same tx/rx connection as my data logger. I could be mistaken though. Do I need the Arduino Mega 2560 as it has mutliple serial connections or will it just make development easier?
Do you have any examples of reading data from data logger remotely? I can always modify it to suit my needs, but I just can't find any examples (though it must have been done before).
