Description (last modified by mitar) (diff)

The task is to fit a wireless node on a helium balloon and test the use of it in open areas, for bridging between nodes in forest areas and determine the lifetime of such a node.

For example, to use a balloon wireless node in a park to cover an open air event, since the trees are a major obstacle for 2.4 GHz signals. How stable the connectivity is? How stable is the node if different wind circumstances? Does moving of the balloon influence connectivity? How to secure the balloon to the ground easily and fool-proof?

For a smaller project or task just part of this could be done (like just evaluating existing solutions, or trying out simple (proof-of-concept) version of it...).

Let them be. :-) We don't have time to implement all our ideas anyway. ;-)

Ticket #910 is more relevant. This one was just for a student project, to do some testing. Ticket #910 is the real deal with some ideas how to implement this.
