How to establish Wi-Fi communication without external Wi-Fi network?

Associate II


I'm currently trying to use Wi-Fi as a way to communicate wirelessly between two B-U585I-IOT02A boards, but don't need connection to the internet. What I'm trying to achieve is a way to get a string or some other data from one board over to another board wirelessly without needing an external Wi-Fi network. I was thinking of setting up one device as a transmitter to constantly send packets to the other device (the receiver), but I'm not entirely sure how to go about doing that. The Wi-Fi examples in the STM32U5 firmware package uses a console to enter an SSID and password to log into a pre-existing network, but I'd like to just have the two boards connect to each other with nothing else. If anyone has suggestions on how I would be able to connect the two boards, that would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you,
