"The value of this book lies in the way it guides the reader through assembling the hardware pieces and setting up the experiments, and provides information not easily found in product specifications, user manuals, or application notes."--ComputingReviews.com, March 6, 2013 "For communications systems engineers and designers, this guide to the Digi International XBee radio communication modules provides practical instruction on real world uses of this robust collection of communications products. Beginning with an overview of the X-CTU module software, the work covers topics such as module configuration, one-way digital input communications, remote control applications, analog signals, handling data from multiple analog inputs, remote module control, device discovery, and setting up XBee networks. A series of appendices provides information on module presets and common configuration options. Chapters include detailed schematics and code examples, and additional online resources are provided. Titus is a renowned computer expert and technical writer."--Reference and Research Book News, October 2012
Présentation de l'éditeur
Get the practical knowledge you need to set up and deploy XBee modules with this hands-on, step-by-step series of experiments
- The only book to cover XBee in practical fashion; enables you to get up and running quickly with step-by-step tutorials.
- Provides insight into the product data sheets, saving you time and helping you get straight to the information you need.
- Includes troubleshooting and testing information, plus downloadable configuration files and fully-documented source code to illustrate and explain operations.
The Hands-on XBee Lab Manual takes the reader through a range of experiments, using a hands-on approach. Each section demonstrates module set up and configuration, explores module functions and capabilities, and, where applicable, introduces the necessary microcontrollers and software to control and communicate with the modules. Experiments cover simple setup of modules, establishing a network of modules, identifying modules in the network, and some sensor-interface designs.
This book explains, in practical terms, the basic capabilities and potential uses of XBee modules, and gives engineers the know-how that they need to apply the technology to their networks and embedded systems.
Jon Titus (KZ1G) is a Freelance technical writer, editor, and designer based in Herriman, Utah, USA and previously editorial director at Test & Measurement World magazine and EDN magazine. Titus is the inventor of the first personal-computer kit, the Mark-8, now in the collection at the Smithsonian Institution.

The topics start off with experiments of connecting an XBee module to a PC and the XBee module to XBee while illuminating the student on topics of digital inputs and output as well as UARTs, analog to digital conversion, and PWM and digital to analog conversion. It then moves on to interfacing a microcontroller to an XBee module and communicating with a host PC or even other microcontrollers using the XBee network.
This book is ideally suited to those folk who are developing with Arduinos moving into electronic applications and want to communicate by wireless. Those with an electronics background may be tempted to dismiss the book as being too simplistic. I would disagree, since it is easy to skim through the simpler parts of the chapter to grapple with the nitty-gritty of the XBee interface. If you have no experience with XBee, irregardless of your electronics knowledge, you should be up to speed by the time you finish the book.
My only quibble is that there is no discussion on the raison d'etre of XBee and why it should be used instead of Bluetooth or Zigbee or any other RF protocol which inhabit the same RF spectrum.
I highly reccomend this book.
Though the book is quite thorough, I still would have liked it to contain also more info on mesh networks, which Xbee excels in.
If you're looking for a starting place with Xbee, buy this book.
