XBee Wireless Sketch Upload Using XBee shield


I have a XBee shield (http://www.coolcomponents.co.uk/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=116&osCsid=j90j5kqfegquksdbumahtmuqg5), a XBee Explorer USB (http://www.coolcomponents.co.uk/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=243&osCsid=j90j5kqfegquksdbumahtmuqg5) and of course two series 1 XBee modules. I can use the serial monitor and see the output no problem, but I can't upload sketches. Tutorials I find online don't use the XBee shield.

Does anyone know how I can wirelessly upload sketches to my Arduino?


Hello Lamba,

I don't think that you can upload any data, to your xbee without a arduino "main" board, because you need a bootloader which is implementated on the ATmega328 on 0.5Kbit. You need a Arduino Uno or Arduino SMD Board, witch stores your code.

Lookout for the different voltage and current between the borads, it is not so easy to connect.

I do have a main board. It's the mainboard+transmitter and pc+ receiver are communicating no problem. It's just I can't upload sketches.

Try this:
