At plants & machines we love the internet and our robots do, too. Sharing our internet-access for those in need we are part of the local freifunk community called weimarnetz.
Without access to the internet we wouldn't have come so far with this project. The network allows us to learn about aquaponics, micro-controller and software programming, it enables us to connect to each other, to freely communicate our ideas and believes. The internet simply lets us do better.
In the future, it will become even more essential for us, to stay in touch with one of our team-members, Simon who is moving to China today.
We are very happy to have had a visit, meet inspiring people and learn a lot.
Thank you sublab, thank you freifunk and last but not least, thank you weimarnetz for sparking our interest.
The most interesting topics during the convention for us were:
- olsrv2 - bandwidth based routing
- multipath routing - for evenly spreading load on the mesh, interesting security aspects
- 5 GHz - weather radar can potentially block all 5 GHz WiFi channels
- the yes man - an AP that agrees to all incoming client probes (you could call it a man in the middle attack for WiFi)
