dec112-logo.png Today we completed the next step in advancing our efforts to make next generation 112 available for people in need in Austria.
 
We have submitted a funding application to www.netidee.at, Austrias largest internet funding initiative. One part of the application was the requirement for a short video about us, the project and the goals.

 
You can find it on youtube (in german) - be nice to us, we are not video professionals :-)

Proxy Mobile IPv6 using Cisco

Wednesday, June 28, 2017

pmipv6-cisco.jpg Proxy Mobile IPv6 (or PMIPv6 for short) allows an ordinary host (PC, Laptop, Smartphone etc.) to use a non changing IP address while roaming between different access points/routers within a PMIP domain. See Wikipedia for more info’s. Cisco offers a powerful implementation in its IOS targeted at large scale installations with regard to ease of deployment and management. For this to work Cisco recommends things like Lightweight Access Points - LAP, Wireless LAN Controllers - WLC and protocols like Control And Provisioning of Wireless Access Points - CAPWAP. Using these components its fairly easy to setup and manage PMIPv6 domains. See this Cisco guide for more infos.

For a project I had to design a very, very low level PMIPv6 lab without almost all the nice things Cisco recommends. And - it works - almost.

Improving access to emergency services for deaf and hard of hearing citizens induces enabling PSAPs and people in need to handle their modes of communications such as text.

Walkera + Arduino = Walkino

Thursday, December 22, 2016

walkino-1.png During the last few blog posts about hacking Walkera quadcopter receivers I sought an easy way of programming them. Currently the easiest way of programming a microcontroller is by using the Arduino IDE. In this post I describe the integration of Walkera RC receiver board into the Arduino IDE.

This will also be the last post of this series as I have achieved (almost) all goals. Future ideas meight be to port the MultiWii firmware to Walkera boards or to use the boards for something completely different. In 2016 we had the idea to use a QR-Ladybird RX2634H board as a secure fitness tracker and made a submission to austrian support program NetIdee. See a short video about it on youtube (in german). Unfortunately it was rejected.
