I am trying to find out what technology is readily avaialble that will allow me to interact with microcontrollers and a desktop PC over an RF link.
It seems I can use RS-232 over Bluetooth, but I wonder what else exists and what products/comapnies I can turn to for products.
I can (if need be) develop firmware to support my needs, but I'd rather not, its too time consuming.
Ideally I want to be able to:
- Address indvidual controllers/boards from a desktop PC
- Be able to send data back from software on any board, to the PC.
- Use RF
- Avoid as much as possible, writing any comms code on the controller (or PC) to support this.
Now TCP/IP would be excellent if its out there, the ability to have socket to socket communication between PC software and software on a controller, would be ideal for my purposes.
Any pointers much appreciated!!
