Wireless Communication

Back to Home

To communicate between the accelerometer and the gun turret we used an Xbee wireless radio.  The xbee was connected to the arduino via a sheild that attached to the header pins.  Since we needed to transmit and recieve a signal, we needed two XBee Modules, two XBee shields (Sparkfun Models), and two arduinos.
