Wifly Project

I'm trying to make a Labview controlled robot with Wifly module 1. First i tried to make a connection with an AP and send data from labview to the mbed 2. Use the Wifly module RN171XVW to set up a adhoc network.

v1.1: Field Robot


Picture from robot without RN-XV Module

v2.0 and v2.1

yes, so far i can control a little robot with commands from labview. setting up an adhoc network from the wifly module wasn't to hard. We didn't use the GPIO9 pin to automatically generate the adhow network, we made a routine for setting it up by software. for sending the data to the robot we made a little protocol where we send a string of numbers, for instance: 10,45 here is 1 the button we pushed and 0,45 the formatted float for the speed of the motors. /media/uploads/BjornVB/main.cpp
