2014-07-22 12:33:29 -0500 asked a question XBee Network Error

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:

I'm new to ROS (ROS Hydro on Ubuntu 12.04) and working on a project that will ultimately control a robot with Arduino and XBee through a GUI. My Arduino has been set up and I'm just trying to figure out a few things.

To drive the robot, would you suggest using the robot steering plugin from rqt or would I have to create a qt widget myself? I'm asking because I haven't seen any examples of the plugin used. If this plugin would be ideal for what I want to do, where do I start?
