Wireless Mesh Network (WMN) - a communications network made up of radio nodes organized in a mesh topology. Clients can be laptops, cell phones, and other devices. Mesh routers forward traffic to/from gateways that may or may not connect to the Internet. This is a good way to communicate with others when the Internet goes down or in any communications emergency situation.
Since he's got several Raspberry Pi boards on hand [Eric Erfanian] decided to see what he could pull off using the robust networking tools present in every Linux installation. His four-part series ta...
Wireless Mesh Network Time Server By John Schuch An Honorable Mention at the 2012 DesignSpark chipKIT Challenge The solar-powered Wireless Mesh Network Time Server receives time and date data from a GPS receiver module and rebroadcasts it into a mesh network through an XBee module for use by any devices attached to the network.
How an Under-Appreciated iOS 7 Feature Will Change the World | The Multipeer Connectivity Framework enables users to flexibly use WiFi and Bluetooth peer-to-peer connections to chat and share photos even without an Internet connection. Big deal, right?
