XBee is a software-based protocol that sits on top of the 802.11 RF wireless devices standard similar to Bluetooth. Unlike Bluetooth, XBee is capable of forming large networks of nodes and boasts advanced features such as mesh networking, simple addressing structures, route detection, route repair, guaranteed delivery and low power operation modes. XBee provides a transparent layer for sending and receiving data from the network. Therefore once the module has been configured and assigned to the correct address then sending and receiving data is as simple as sending and receiving RS232 bytes through the chips UART. XBee is the name of a specification for a suite of high level communication protocols using small, low-power digital radios based on the IEEE 802.15.4-2006 standard for wireless personal area networks (WPAN), such as wireless headphones connecting with cell phones via short-range radio. The technology is intended to be simpler and less expensive than other WPAN, such as Bluetooth. XBee is targeted at radio-frequency (RF) applications that require a low data rate, long battery life, and secure networking. XBee is a low-cost, low-power, wireless mesh networking standard. The low cost allows the technology to be widely deployed in wireless control and

monitoring applications, the low power-usage allows longer life with smaller batteries, and the mesh networking provides high reliability and larger range. XBee protocols are intended for use in embedded applications requiring low data rates and low power consumption. XBee's current focus is to define a generalpurpose, inexpensive, self-organizing mesh network that can be used for industrial control, embedded sensing, medical data collection, smoke and intruder warning, building automation, home automation, etc. The resulting network will use very small amounts of power -- individual devices must have a battery life of at least two years to pass XBee certification. Typical application areas include:








temperature control, safety and security, movies and music

Home Awareness Water sensors, power sensors, smoke and fire detectors, smart appliances and access sensors

Mobile Services m-payment, m-monitoring and control, m-security and access control, m-healthcare and tele-assist

Commercial Building Energy monitoring, HVAC, lighting, access control

Industrial Plant Process control, asset management, environmental management, energy management, industrial device control.

XBee OPERATION: The XBee boards use a XBEE module to interface to the XBee network. The V2 XBEE modules come in two varieties. One is configured to be the XBee network coordinator (EB051C) and the other is configured to be either a router node or an end device node (EB051R). Coordinator nodes are responsible for creating the XBee network and allowing other XBee nodes to join. Only one coordinator node can exist on any single network. Router nodes are responsible for routing signals to other routers or to end nodes. End device nodes are responsible for collecting or depositing real world data to and from the XBee network. The Coordinator node and Router nodes are capable of handling up to eight children devices. The children devices can consist of either other Router nodes or End device nodes. If an End device node is configured to sleep then the parent device associated for that node will be responsible for buffering any incoming data. Therefore if you are using sleeping End devices you must make sure to poll the parent for data every time the device comes out of sleep mode.
