Making Android talk with Arduino through WiFi

After spending days and more than 11 hours straight today, we’ve finally got Android talking with Arduino via WiFi using the cute little RN XV WiFi module. What was considered to be a mountain turned out to be a molehill. The funny part is that this now looks more easier than the Bluetooth communication which I’m comfortable with. What we’re doing here is connecting the Arduino to an Android device which is configured as a HotSpot (a very cool Android feature from ver 2.2 onwards). Snapshot:

I’ll be explaining in detail all steps, configurations and code in my next post since I’m very tired now having worked the entire day getting this working. It’s 2:30 A.M 🙂 Good Night
