- Jul 1, 2011If you are not embedding significant compute power in the robot, why would you want to use a heavyweight TCPIP stack and wifi? Why not use a lightweight wireless protocol like Zigbee or Bluetooth, which essentially create a wireless RS232 connection between the remote computer and the robot? You can get 100m range out of Bluetooth, and over 1.5km range with Zigbee. Furthermore, the variety of network topologies one can implement using Zigbee makes it a very appealing for developing swarm robots and other distributed robotics applications.WestonOn Fri, Jul 1, 2011 at 12:28 PM, Bruce J Weimer MD <bjweimer@...> wrote:
Thanks for the information!
I don't really need a processor on the Neato since I plan to do all the
processing on the desktop. I just need to be able to link the desktop to
the Neato somehow (somehow other than a really long USB cable). So the
question is: Is there a Linux compatible USB wifi dongle that I could use?
Has anyone done this? Any information or better ideas would be appreciated!
