Wireless Communication for Mobile Robots Using Commercial System

Humairah Mansor, Abdul Hamid Adom, Norasmadi Abdul Rahim

Abstract

Commercial mobile robots provide good platform for the  study and development of algorithms for wireless mobile communication of devices. E-Puck is a good example, with wireless communication utilising Bluetooth among others. However, the limitations of Bluetooth communications lead to the investigation of using X-Bee module as an alternative. This is to allow the E-Puck to communicate with a computer and other mobile robots using specified Zigbee protocol. This paper presents X-Bee module as wireless communication method between computer and E-Pucks and the way they exchange data.
