I'm working on the IoT for the past one month. I was able to read data from various sensors directly from the board. Also I was able to establish connection between the Xbee modules (Remote & Host Xbee's).
Now I want to read the sensor values via Xbee modules.(Not directly).
Do we require any other api's apart from serialport & Xbee-api to receive/transmit & build/parse API frames respectively via the board's serial port.
Any inputs in this case, so that, it will help me solve the problem is appreciated.
Thanks & Regards,
Apparently there’s some trouble with the UART connection between the Xbee and the Edison module. As you know the Xbee shield communicates with the Arduino TX and RX pins, and these pins in a standard Arduino board correspond to D1 and D2. Maybe you should try following the steps in this thread to set up the appropriate multiplexing, https://communities.intel.com/thread/55790.
Also you could try using Python instead of JS, you can check this guide for Xbee https://pypi.python.org/pypi/XBee.
