Get the practical knowledge you need to set up and deploy XBee modules with this hands-on, step-by-step series of experiments
- The only book to cover XBee in practical fashion; enables you to get up and running quickly with step-by-step tutorials.
- Provides insight into the product data sheets, saving you time and helping you get straight to the information you need.
- Includes troubleshooting and testing information, plus downloadable configuration files and fully-documented source code to illustrate and explain operations.
The Hands-on XBee Lab Manual takes the reader through a range of experiments, using a hands-on approach. Each section demonstrates module set up and configuration, explores module functions and capabilities, and, where applicable, introduces the necessary microcontrollers and software to control and communicate with the modules. Experiments cover simple setup of modules, establishing a network of modules, identifying modules in the network, and some sensor-interface designs.
This book explains, in practical terms, the basic capabilities and potential uses of XBee modules, and gives engineers the know-how that they need to apply the technology to their networks and embedded systems.
