Description (last modified by mitar) (diff)

The commonly available network equipment contains quite some unused capabilities, which can be put to use by the user. Till now, we have enabled the use of thermometers, SD memory cards. The challenge is to find out new uses of wireless mesh network equipment. An information point with a display might be controlled this way or the equipment can be fitted with batteries and used in emergency situations, bringing the information access anywhere in a short period of time.

Identify interesting/useful modifications and construct them if possible.

1-wire LCD module was constructed, but has not yet been confirmed to work, due to 1-wire router software - owfs bugs. The LCD 2x16 character display has the top row full of black squares, indicating that the screen has not yet been initialized.
