Details

The second PittMesh Working Group meeting!

We will have a brief talk about Access Point mode and Ad-Hoc mode and why mesh networks use Ad-Hoc mode to do what they do. Then we will have a group discussion about projects that would be useful to PittMesh as well as just nifty WiFi related projects that people want to explore with help from other members.

Adam Longwill will go over one such project he is embarking on: a (semi-)permanently installed WiFi wardriving setup in the official Meta Mesh WiFi Wagon (a 2008 Honda CRV) that combines GPS coordinates with wireless site surveying data that can be mapped and will eventually be overlayed on www.PittMesh.net.

There is no fee to attend, all ages are welcome but the subject matter is not for the technologically feint of heart. No food will be provided but food can be ordered and delivered. Meet at WorkHardPGH, 744 East Warrington Avenue, 15210 at 6:30pm. Parking is available on the street and limited parking can be found around back of WorkHardPGH.
