We need some help in communication part

Hello, everybody. This is my last semester of undergraduate school and we need to finish our senior design.
And one of most difficult and important part is we need some communication with UGVs and UAVs. The UGVs should connect to their most closer UAVs and change LED light. So my question is that what board we should use(like Arduino or Rasberry Pi) and anybody can help us?

Thank you for any attention and help !!!

we need some communication

I would expect someone who is finishing a "senior" design would be able to give a better description of what is required than "some communication".

That's a bit like a newspaper editor saying he needs "some words" for tomorrow's paper.

The communication is that UGVs can connect to the UAVs and change its LED light.

Just connect wires between them.

I know. You said that in your Original Post.

I had hoped that my Reply #1 would have prompted you to write 8 or 10 lines explaining things in more detail.

Perhaps things like what distance these things need to communicate over and maybe if there are constraints on what type of communication they can use and perhaps what power they have available. Maybe even what "change LED light" means and how many UAVs will be in range and how you expect to know which is the nearest one.

So what kind of board should we use? Arduino uno, Rasberry pi or something else?

You ask us a question, we tell you there is not enough information. Instead of providing it, you ask a different question. This is not going to go well.

How can we advise when you have not provided any useful information that might form the basis for advice.

No, he didn't even ask a different question! He asked the exact same question.

There is not enough information about your requirements to answer the question.

I realized that after I posted. Good point.

My work for this project is the wifi comunication part, and we wanna when our UGVs(cars) move close to our UAV, the LED on the UGVs can light and can change light color.

Finally you get around to telling us that you want to communicate using WiFi. What else do you know that you are keeping secret from us?

What data can the UAV send to the cars so that they can calculate how far away from it they are?

In case of doubt, you are NOT going to be able to use WiFi signal strength to measure distance.

Actually, I'm still confused about it, lul...

mawanlu4730823:

Yes. One of those will be what you need. My guess is "something else".

BTW don't the UGV and UAV already have boards in them? What sort of board are they?

Well you are a lot closer to the project than we are so you can probably guess how much more confused we are.

And, to be more practical, what is the “it” that you are still confused about?

I think the OP's unasked question is "How can one vehicle tell which of many other vehicles is the closest? We need to know what hardware, software and data structures are required. Then, once the first vehicle knows which of the others is closest, how can the first vehicle tell that other vehicle to turn its lights on?"

We already used motor shield and Wemos board(a kind of board combined with esp8266 and Arduino uno) build our UGV, and I'm not familiar with the UAV. But our advisor wanna us add a board to UAV and then set up a communication with the UAV and UGV

mawanlu4730823:

And what do you propose to send with this communication link?

...R

Dose there have some kind of board can measure the distance to another board?
