Wireless reprogramming Arduino w/XBee redux!
A few months ago I posted up
a tutorial on how to reprogram and communicate with an Arduino using two XBees. However, I foolishly only tested it with small (1K) programs. Apparently the setup was flaky with large programs. Well, some people complained and some people rewrote the bootloader. But I was pretty sure there was a way to fix it …
So yesterday was
XBee hacking day and not only did I learn more about the XBee specs but also fixed the problems with timeouts and resetting. So, please check it out again & give it another try. This setup seems to work well with large programs, doesn’t require a new Arduino bootloader and is compatible with AVRdude as well as Arduino IDE.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s
CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
