Chapter 6. Remote Control

Now you might want your project to be mobile. You'll at least want to disconnect it from the tether cable that you have been using to communicate with it to send control commands. In this chapter, you'll learn how to communicate wirelessly with your project. Depending on your choice of device, you'll be able to communicate across the room or across a distance of up to a mile.

In this chapter, you'll learn the following:

  • How to communicate with the Galileo using an XBee transmitter/receiver, a point-to-point communication system that allows you to communicate between two Galileos or between a Galileo and a host computer

  • How to configure the Galileo using a Wi-Fi mini PCI Express card so you can communicate via Wireless LAN
