Question About Blue Tooth

So, the only way to connect to this board is with Bluetooth? I was hoping serial or Wifi.




Upgrade to ARC Pro

Experience early access to the latest features and updates. You'll have everything that is needed to unleash your robot's potential.

you can use other modules to connect to the board via a com port, Uart compatable. You can replace it with a Xbee module or the Wifi module recommended by DJ.
I have ordered two bluetooth adapters .99 cent each and free shipping. I don't know much about bluetooth or XBee except that it is available for my boebot. But, I am hoping to use the EZ-B on my Create and ROOMBA and Speecys 101-C 22Deg freedom biobot, not my boebot because I have take in all apart and using parts for something else.

On the com port connector, are you saying just hook up a serial port to the RX and TX pins on the EZBoard? and just communicate with that? I have the PS/2 adapter that I wired for the Arduino. Do you mean hook something up like that? I saw where D.J. has a video on doing this. But, he also has a wireless camera connected. I don't know if getting to the EZ-B is only through the serial port.

It is kinda foggy. But, I sort of know what you are saying. Could you clear it up a bit.


if you read my post on using bluetooth it takes about using serial adapter ,very simple just remove the bluetooth gnd connect to gnd ,v+ to v+ tx to tx and rx to rx its label on the board
and set the serial adapter to 3 volts like mostly all can
make very shore dont run it at 5 volts

also you wont get wireless like with bluetooth unless you are having a on board computer in your robot
second bluetooth adapter are at newegg new for $5 ,fast shipping
it says in general ' dj another question on bluetooth"
