Hi! I have been searching the web on how to establish a mesh network. I tried following Digimesh data sheet and using Andrew Rapp’s library but I didn’t get the meshing to work. I have set the Arduino to API 2 mode and have programmed two routers to send data directly to the coordinator; thinking that it will self-heal if one of the router is out of sight from the coordinator. However, when I test it out in an outdoor setting it didn’t self-heal ie it was a star connected network instead of a mesh.
Have no clue why. Could anyone provide me with an explanation? Stuck with this problem for weeks I am using Arduino micro for one of the routers and Unos for the other router and coordinator. I checked the connections on XCTU and the network mode show that a mesh network was established as shown in the diagram below.
