Is it possible to transmit live audio/video feed and at the same time, receive commands through UART using only 1 RF transceiver connected to the Arduino board?

I want to control the Arduino through serial communication (UART) which can be accomplished by using RF connection to control it from a remote. I also want to transmit live audio and video feed from the Arduino using the same RF transceiver. Is this possible?

I found AVCTP, but I'm not sure if it enables serial communication. Also, I don't like to use Bluetooth for some reasons.

Thanks in advance!

  • $\begingroup$ @MarkOmo Yes, live video and basic serial through a single RF transceiver. I'm thinking of 900 MHz. $\endgroup$

As I suspect you found out (based on your other question 7169), doing both over the same RF link will be more truble than it is worth, You could use ip as you sujested but this might turn out to be more truble than it is worth unless your main controller is a raspberry pi or BBB that already has native networking. I am assuming you are talking about a quadrocopter or RC car. For those platforms the standard thing to do is use a setup like this or make your own, consisting of a transmitter/recever pair, a camera and somhing to view it on. they sell plenty of battery powered monitors. as for telemetry the gold standard as far as I am concerned are the 3dr 900mhz serial modules, they work great up to about a mile with stock antennas beware you will need a pair to operate.
