I have a question I'm hoping someone might discuss with me.
Project: I have started a project where I have connected several photodiodes onto an Arduino using a Xbee shield and Mux shield to detect light intensity as well as a motor that rotates a dome where all the photodiodes are connected to. Everything is working perfectly. The data that I have programmed to collect is being transmitted and received perfectly through the Xbees S2 modules; Arduino/MuxShield/Router AT(Transmitter) to Coordinator AT(Receiver)/Serial connection/Python.
Question: I'd like to set up or possible code something where I can send a reset. Sometimes the Motor stalls or perhaps I might need to replace a photodiode. I would like to send a reset from the Coordinator to the Router. Anyone have any idea on how I could send that or possibly program that? Is it something I can configure within the Xbees?. So that whenever I press a button or a key on my PC I can send a reset from the Coordinator (connected on my computer) to Reset the Router (Connected to Power Source). I was thinking "Processing" would be a good solution to this instead of Python, but I'm not sure. Any Ideas.
