I’m wanting to set up a 2 way co-ordinator / router network in API mode to enable checking of transmit status in both directions. One Xbee will be attached via an explorer to a laptop running a Processing sketch.
My first question is - is it possible to pass a frame of bytes to a local xbee while it is in API mode? If I run it in transparent mode I can see the data being passed, but not in API mode. I’m unsure whether this is just because I’m not formatting the data write to serial properly? I’ve tried investigating adding a library to Processing for Xbee but has involved importing a java library and haven’t had much success. Is compiling a frame of bytes intrinsically difficult, or should it be achievable by writing 0x7e, 0x00 etc to serial?
