Designing a device for vibration condition monitoring, using multiple wireless accelerometers. Intending to have an arduino as the main controller and peripheral accelerometers sending the vibration data to this for analysis and storage.
Having difficulty with the wireless part of the design. Digital accelerometers use either a I2C or an SPI protocol, and I can't really find a wireless device that will natively interact with it. I found a BLE module that could, but it lacked the required data rate (https://www.bluegiga.com/en-US/products/ble121lr-bluetooth-smart-long/). Currently looking into using a XBee module, but I am not familiar with the technology. I understand that I will need to convert the accelerometer data to UART, but am not 100% sure how.
I'm not sure if XBee is the best path to look into, or if it is capable of handling multiple accelerometers. Bit of a novice with this sort of stuff, so I would appreciate someone letting me know if i'm heading in the right direction with the wireless side of things, and to also recommend resources for me to look into.
