Interfacing BBFuino with BlueBee

Bluetooth wireless communication is becoming more and more common recently. In response to this trend, Cytron Technologies has came up with a new Bluetooth module called BlueBee, which provides hobbyists a wireless remote control on their microcontroller circuits thus robots through serial port communication service attached with BlueBee. In the section, a simple project will be constructed to illustrate how to use BlueBee for wireless communication to interface another Cytron product, breadboard friendly Arduino, BBFuino to control LEDs.

Getting Started with Bluetooth BEE

The Bluetooth Bee (BTBEE) is an easy to use Bluetooth Serial Port Profile (SPP) module compatible with existing XBEE sockets, designed for transparent wireless serial connection setup. Using UART interface, BTBEE only can be use as a slave and communicate with host like computer, bluetooth handphone, SKKCA and other bluetooth devices. Bare in mind that communication between 2 BTBEE is not working. Bluetooth BEE is compatible with XBEE starter kit board (SKXBEE-BOARD) and UC00B, so you may use them for BTBEE communication.
