RSSI Reading Signal Strength With Arduino and XBee

I have two Arduino Uno with XBee Module. I need help with reading the RSSI data. I want the RSSI data to be shown on my computer. Could somebody help me getting started.

I have already configured the XBee modules, so I can send data with the terminal on X-CTU. I also wonder how I can send data wireless from one Arduino to the other Arduino. The problem is that I can't run my code that shows the incoming data on my Computer when I have the XBee connected to the Arduino because I have to remove the microcontroller when using XBee.

Why?

Sniff. Sniff. I think you stepped in something that smells a lot like bullshit.

Ditch try to talk to the XBee using X-CTU and just open the Serial Monitor.

I want the RSSI value somehow.

I want the RSSI value somehow.

I heard you say that the first time. What I want to know is why. The value is NOT a good indicator of distance.

The thing is that I want to determine the position of an object. To determine the position I need to know the signal strength.

I have a project in school which is to find in which room an object is in. So I thought I could find an object using RSSI with triangulation.

If somebody here have any advice on how I can find an missing object in a room please help me.
