I am working with the XBee Network Example on the wiki (using ROS Hydro on Ubuntu 12.04 with Series 1 XBees) but I can't get further than setting up the XBees. Has anyone successfully got the example working? I get this error after entering the command

rosrun rosserial_xbee /dev/ttyS0 1

RosSerial Xbee Network

Contacting Xbees : ['\x00\x01']

Exception in thread Thread-6:

Traceback (most recent call last):

What port is your xbee connected to?

I had a (mostly) working XBee network going with ROS Hydro. But when I upgraded to Indigo last night, I got this error immediately. I haven't found any solution yet Edit: I just removed all the ros-indigo-rosserial-* packages, and copied my old rosserial from Hydro to Indigo. Now working fine.

I am facing the same error. Can anyone provide any fix for this? I am trying to configure a network of 5 firebot V robots. I have assigned them a common PAN_ID as 1994 and made one of the xbee as co-ordinator.
