Hi, i have a robot i am building and want to have robot in 1 house and computer in my other house. I just got the wifi Uart-Wifi module(did not get it to work yet)is this a good path to take or should i look into something else?I realy dont want to put a computer on it
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Get access to the latest features and updates with ARC Early Access edition. You'll have everything that's needed to unleash your robot's potential!
Wifi Or Xbee could both be options.
Usually, wireless works for a matter of feet, not miles.
You don't have to put the computer on the robot, but one nearby/in the remote house running ARC is pretty much required. If the computer at your house is the one with the EZ-B smarts on it & the internet between the houses fails, your bot would lose its brain, possibly be left driving & crash & damage something.
The range on the Uart-Wifi module won't get you too far AP to Module...maybe one house over if you are lucky. XBee or Synapse have much better range for serial communications from what I have seen. If you have wifi at both locations this is doable with IP port forwarding.
I am also having a bit of trouble getting my Wifi UART to work with ARC...there are a few in the forums that have. I have not spent too much time on it lately but will be picking it back up soon.
i can't get my Uart-Wifi module to work yet with EZ, but that is what i was thing IP port forwarding
