Wireless Glove Controller
To configure the XBees, we will be using the XBee Series 1 firmware. It is recommended to configure each XBee using the XBee Explorer USB.
If you have not already, check out the Starting with XCTU section under Exploring XBees and XCTU to configure your XBees. If you are using an XBee 3, make sure to configure the firmware with the Series 1 firmware to follow along with this tutorial.
For simplicity, we will be sending commands with the XBees in transparent mode set for a point-to-point configuration. Make sure to configure each XBee with a unique MY address if there are more than two XBees in your CH and PAN ID. You will then need to adjust the DL address for each respective XBee.
