    GREAT product GREAT value
    Review by Jay
    A 'must have' when using XBee modules.SIMPLE, easy to use and 1/3 the price of the competition.You can reprogram Xbees and test in mere minutes then pop the module into your 'motherboard' or project.

The Edison looks interesting, did not look today,but last I looked they only had the boards and not any supporting hardware. Trossen with Intel and others is coming out with a homonoid robot that will have an Edison as well as a new board with an arm m3 processor to control it, which looks interesting

... you'll need 16x RB-Spa-631 (perhaps one spare) If you are considering RB-Dfr-148, it seems you want wireless communication, and would need two XBee style wireless modules per rover. For example: http://www.robotshop.com/en/sfe-maxstream-xbee-transceiver-wire-antennae.html Last, you might want ...

We tested the module with the rover and can't seem to get it working. Seems like the Xbee sockets are not compatible will all modules. We need to look into this further... In the meantime, we would recommend using the DFRobot module since we know that it works well: ...

... protocol it implements, but it does look like the one used for CellBots. The microcontroller that comes with this robot is a Romeo V2 that has an Xbee socket, so all you should need is a bluetooth bee . The Romeo is based on Arduino, so you can also modify the sample code to suit your needs. Hope ...
