Brand new ‘wixelite’ in need of some guidance.
The task I have set myself is to wirelessly connect a 15 button remote keypad to an Arduino Uno located in a model train. Due to IO restrictions on the Arduino end (I also need the Arduino to control speed and direction on the train aswell as a sound system) I was thinking that the best option there would be for the Arduino to receive the pin status via its onboard serial pin (Rx only as I dont need anything back from it).
That is to say:
Button input to “RemoteControl” wixel,
“RemoteControl” wixel wirelessly sends button pressed to “Receiver” wixel,
“Receiver” wixel will TX button status serially to Arduino.
I admit I am going round in circles at the moment trying to pick the right combination of examples from which I can create the necessary App to do all of this, some guidance here would be appreciated.
So far I have stripped apart the IO_repeater app which seems to fit some of my needs and I have also been looking at the wireless_serial App, (I set that up on the two wixels I have and have communicated with them) to be honest these seem way too advanced for the application I am trying to set up.
