I am working on a mini project which involves using xbees in a mesh network in a relatively small room (10x3m). I want multiple stationary Xbee’s scattered around the room to act as nodes or receivers, and have a couple smaller mobile Xbee boards which act as transmitters to transmit their data mainly RSSI to the receiver (or vice versa) and be displayed on a computer and/or phone.
I am a bit confused in which products I will need to buy for this. I am confused about needing certain devices such as which boards to get (I have looked at Arduino), and also shields?
Any help is greatly appreciated, Thanks.
