ZigBee Internet Gateway

Pt 10246

ZigBee Internet Gateway, Rob writes –

Just finished presenting the ZigBee Internet Gateway at Sketching in Hardware 2010, held at the Encounter dome at LAX airport. My presentation covered the basics of (essentially) bringing web services to the Arduino via a ConnectPort and XBee radios from Digi International. The Gateway is intended for use in schools, design firms, hacker spaces or art venues.

Rob’s book, Building Wireless Sensor Networks: With Zigbee, Xbee, Arduino, and Processing should be out in Sept as well. We’ll be stocking it of course!

Create wireless sensor networks and intelligent interactive devices with the ZigBee wireless networking protocol. With this fast-paced, hands-on guide, you’ll build a series of useful projects by the time you’re halfway through the book, including a complete Arduino- and XBee-powered wireless network that delivers remotely sensed data. This resource- and reference-packed book is perfect for inventors, hackers, crafters, students, hobbyists, and scientists.
