Note: If you are searching for Wireless Sensor Networks devices (motes) you may be interested in our ready to market sensor platform: Waspmote. You can discover the differences between both platforms in the document: Waspmote vs SquidBee.
The Multiprotocol Radio Shield is an interconnection shield for Arduino, and was designed to connect two communication modules at the same time. This that means a lot of possibilities and applications can be made using the cooking-hacks modules.
The Multiprotocol Radio Shield includes the SPI bus connections that allows the use of the RS-485 and CAN Bus modules, but also is compatible with the rest of the cooking-hacks modules as RFID, XBee and Bluetooth.
The Arduino XBee shield allows your Arduino board to communicate wirelessly using Zigbee. It was developed in collaboration with Arduino. This documentation describes the use of the shield with the XBee module.
It is also compatible with Raspberry Pi using the Raspberry Pi to Arduino shields connection bridge.
If you are interested in Internet of Things (IoT) or M2M projects check our open source sensor platform Waspmote which counts with more than 100 sensors available to use 'off the shelf', a complete API with hundreds of ready to use codes and a low consumption mode of just 0.7µA to ensure years of battery life.
