Udpsend -> WIFI -> Arduino LOW COST
> the Question is can arduino be programmed for receiving data directly from the USB WIFI adaptor?
In theory yes, I guess. In practice only an advanced engineer could potentially pull it off. It’s definitely not a plug-and-play option.
RFduino could be also a solution.
its not wifi, but bleutooth 4
Thank to all for the replies.
We don’t need Hi rate of transmission, but we need to communicate with many different systems.
We starting to investigate in RF field with something like this one https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10534
What do you think about it?
I have no experience with that.
I agree with dtr on the sense/stage miniBee setup.
much less hassle than bluetooth – disconnecting and re-connecting devices is no problem.
the miniBee basically is a version of the arduino, integrated with the xbee radio, and it’s specially designed for larger networks.
if it’s not too complicated data, an xbee-only network in API-mode (without arduino) might also be possible:
(but i have no personal experience with that)
Is this link any use?
That RFduino looks like a game changer!
Here is the lowcost WiFi module – ESP8266 serial WIFI (about 5$) you can find it on ebay. Here is the arduino library for it – https://github.com/534659123/OCOROBOT-WIFI-ESP8266-arduino-library. Happy construction!
