I am doing a new project with arduino. In few words I want to have some stations formed by: arduino fio with xbee Pro S1 and some sensors. Arduino will read information from these sensors and send from one station to other (in line: one to one to one to one…) till the last station which upload information to internet.
Every station will be autonomous so I have to use some solar panels or something like that. In that way, I want to use sleep mode untill they have to send data.
I though that first station can get awake at a determined hour, read its sensors and get up the next station through xbee, send info and go to sleep again. The second station, read the info sended and its info, get up the third station and send information (from first and second stations) to the third one and so on.
Is it possible to wake up an arduino by xbee? I have read about differents sleep modes but I just see it can be get awake by an input. I don’t know if xbee can do that if arduino is sleeping.
I will use xbee series 1. I don’t know if it is important information.
