We created a small Processing/Arduino program to check on the connection quality between two XBees (one linked to the computer and the other on an Arduino board). The Processing host just sends data packets (bytes) which are read and returned by the Arduino board. The host then compares the received packet to the one that was expected to establish the quality of the connection. It’s pretty simple but it works.
