I am currently trying to develop a telemetry wireless system to transmit serial data from an ecu to my pc. I have obtain two xbee pro 868 modules and the xbee explorer serial to set one as transmitter and the second one as receiver. I also have downloaded the X CTU software to configure the modules. Any ideas how to set them up and does anyone know if I need a unit with a UART between the control unit and the module or can I just use the explorer for that? I am just wondering if the data send from the ecu will be read from the transmitter module. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance.
