I am in the search for some recommendation on a good hardware component for building a mesh network with Arduino
I am not experienced in building a mesh network. So all recommendations and guidance would be appreciated.
My case is: I have 10 small robots that I'd like to connect, so they can share data like position and so on. UPDATE! The robots are build with Arduino Nano, so it would be preferable with a solution that compatible with the Arduino environment.
Also I'd like to log the data from the robots to a laptop. The ideal would be through some sort of USB unit, that can connect to the mesh network and log the data from the robots.
I don't need to send commands over the network, but only statistical data like position etc.
The range of the network would be in an open room, with a maximum of 100m2
I would like an easy setup component, which have to be small, low-energy consumption and not expensive. I know these requirements might be general for all, but I stated them anyway.
