I'm working on a remote console that communicates through an Arduino Ethernet Shield through ethernet to a computer that controls an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle.
The software is already on the computer mentioned. I'll be using the Duemilanove to communicate with the computer. I will send commands and receive updated status reports.
Right now I'm doing heavy research on the protocol I should be using for communication. Is TCP the way to go or should I look into UDP?
Where could I find more information on this subject/idea? Any projects out there similar to what I have in mind that I could look at?
