I'm thinking of using the XBee Pro Digimesh 2.4 chipsets in a project.
However, the sensors I am deploying may move relatively fast in and out of the reach of other sensors. It's important for me to have the ability to build a mesh as well as read RSSI values.
For a proof of concept, I am planning to trilaterate the position using 3 other chipsets (resembling antennas). First in a static scenario, then heading over to a dynamic scenario with moving sensors.
Connecting to the client and sending a small data packet should succeed, then reading the RSSI of this last packet from the antennas' chipsets.
I have some experince in bluetooth hardware, and it takes quite sometime to build a connection using BT...
So as the sensors can & will move relatively quickly:
How fast can I connect to a client using your chipsets?
My second question: Is there a possibility to force a mesh network for testing purposes while all clients are within reach? Is there a way to specify a route?
