USB is more complex than a plane RS-232, for example. There are several USB profiles (HID, MSD, CDC,...) and this should be your starting point. Also be aware that the peers are not equal, one is always master and the other is slave.simplesi wrote:I want 2 wirelessly connect a computer USB port and say an Arduino USB port.
How do you expect the Arduino board to be visible by the Computer ? As a serial port, sound card, hard disk, MIDI device, keyboard, ... ?simplesi wrote:Computer using Arduino IDE connected wirelessly to and Arduino as an example
As is typical, working on the spec and getting the technology into shipping products will take a while. "We anticipate that the MA USB specification will be completed within the next year," USB-IF said. "It will likely be another 8-12 months after that before we actually see the technology in consumer devices on retail shelves."
LadyAda has this sussed using her Bluetooth serial link device. Looks like a nice bit of kit, does DTR/RTS/DSR and dynamic baud rate selection. I've got one in the mail, I'll let you know how it works out.simplesi wrote:Computer using Arduino IDE connected wirelessly to and Arduino as an example
You'd need to convert USB to "something wireless" and then back to USB. USB timing requirements are very strict, what is the main reason that you cannot insert general wireless transparent channel. Therefore, I don't see any viable solution here which would not be dedicated and limited to just predefined set of use cases (forget about "one size fits all").simplesi wrote:Lets keep it simple - upload a blinkpin13 sketch
We should be aware that it is not a kind of upgrade or add-on to the wired USB.DeeJay wrote:Wireless USB certainly exists as a tentative 'standard', and has done for some time...

But wirelessly connecting an arduino to a computer in a simple, hassle free way is a problem looking for a solution :0)jdb wrote:http://xkcd.com/670/meltwater wrote:Engineers NEVER say no. They just say it will cost you more and take longer.
Also, wireless USB is a solution looking for a problem. One that is effectively cornered by bluetooth for low bandwidth and normal 802.11 wireless for high bandwidth.
