I have a pretty cool IOT project I am working on involving GPS, XBees, and am planning on using the particle ecosystem for processing.
Here is what I am running into.
For use in this example, let’s say I have 3 Ublox Zed FP9. Each of these modules will be paired with a particle argon, and an XBee. One of these units will be set up in base configuration with two rovers taking the rtk stream.
I would like to use the XBee to serve the rtk stream to increase the range of the rovers. But I think (hopefully not) that if I am using the XBees radios to serve the RTK stream, that I can’t use the same XBee for other packets I need to send back to the base.
Obviously there are ways around this, such as the onboard Wi-Fi and BT, but I am not sure of the range.
BTW, I am just warming back up with Serial Communication stuff starting about a week ago, so this may seem like a totally obvious answer to some but I can’t intuit this one on my own, and there is a little bit of confilicting information out there about this when using the UART for RTK.
