Wireless Communication

  • Neil Cameron


While Bluetooth communication is used between devices less than 10m apart, communication over longer distances is possible using wireless transceiver modules. The greater distance between wireless transceiver modules or between a wireless transceiver module and the Arduino enables access to remote sensors and control of remote devices. The nRF24L01 radio transceiver module operates at 2.4GHz, the same frequency as Bluetooth, with 126 available channels and baud rates of 250kbps, 1Mbps, and 2Mbps. The lower baud rate may be more suitable for longer distances.
