In this section, we'll develop a Python application to show how to communicate between XBee modules. We need two XBee modules or more to implement our demo. We will implement a mesh network like the following for our demo:
All XBee modules should already have XBee Digimesh firmware installed. Now we'll configure our mesh network.
First, we define a network ID for our mesh network. We can do this using XCTU. You can open each XBee module in the XCTU application. Then, we'll set a network ID (ID) in XCTU:
