I am in the initial stages of planning a project that involves the wireless transmission of data between either an Arduino or Raspberry Pi and a base computer/RPi.
Data transmitted includes the state of a number of different environmental sensors, which have low data bandwidth requirements, but ideally I'd also like to be able to transmit a good quality video stream (ideally 720p, but at least 480p).
I see that most of the XBees have a 250kbps limit, and recognise that this is under ideal circumstances and I suspect that actual data transmission rate will be less than this, say 200kbps? So I feel think that an XBee solution is not going to be able to keep up with the data transmitted.
Anyway, I was wondering what options I have for wireless data transfer mechanisms that would be capable of data streams better than 250kbps and with 50m+ range?
I've started to look at modules such as this, but am unsure what the expected range of such units are (see this other question that I recently posted) and so I'm just trying to get an idea of what my options are. Cheers!
