Wireless robot technology
- Hello.Does anyone know of a good way to wirelessly connect a computer and a small mobile robot? I am looking to transmit sound and also some digital information bidirectionally. Thanks for your time, Brian Boeckmann

Your use of Yahoo! Groups is subject to the Yahoo! Terms of Service.Here is a link to "FireStick II". It's a four-bit IR channel (like your tv remote), with data ratesup to 2400 baud. By "channel", I mean a matched transmitter and receiver, one for the computer,and the other for your 'bot. I used the original "FireStick", whose transmitter had a range of 100 feet running off a 9V battery. (could be powered from either a 9V or 5V DC supply) This was for a programmable thermostat I did about a year ago. I did not check to see if the signal was directional. It may or may not be. Our application was for a fixed thermostat transmitting heating/cooling control signals to a fixed controller; nothing was moving.This channel would certainly work for sending control codes wirelessly, at least at low data rates.--- Alan Fay--- alanfay@...--- EarthLink: It's your Internet.
