How to handle Wireless Serial Data?

Started by Scott Lingerfelt January 13, 2006
I have a couple of retail stores that have multiple wireless sensors
that send simple serial data to a receiver that allows connection to a
PC. I have been asked to create a simple web server for each receiver
and a simple web interface to present the data. The web server etc.. is
no problem but handling the registering and comparision of the sensors
is the difficult part. I do not know the mac or serial number of each
sensor and I will not be installing the servers at the sites. I need the
ability to receive the data parse the data which contains the serial
number and payload.

What is the best way to handle the writing to the PIC's EEprom and the
comparing of all incoming packets to whats already registered? On top of
that I will have some basic calculations on the payload. The web page
will be a basic interface with the serial number, the number as they
have registered (1-X), raw packet, calculated data and thats about it.

I have never done anything like this and need some guidance a point in
the direction to were I can find information to assist me in this
project. Maybe a code snippet.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,
