Week 13: Networking and Communications
This issue is related to Fab Academy Week 13: Networking and Communications.
Assignment: Networking and Communications
- Send a message between two projects
- Design, build, and connect wired or wireless node(s) with network or bus addresses
- Demonstrate workflows used in network design
- Implement and interpret networking protocols and/or communication protocols
- Linked to the group assignment page
- Documented your project.
- Documented what you have learned from implementing networking and/or communication protocols
- Explained the programming process/es you used.
- Outlined problems and how you fixed them
- Included design files (or linked to where they are located if you are using a board you have designed and fabricated earlier) and original code.
What does "two projects" mean in the group assignment?
Answer: You need to send a message between any combination of boards, computers and/or mobile devices.
Do I have to make new boards for this assignment?
Answer: No. You can use any board you have designed and fabricated from an earlier assignment.
Can we use Arduino/commercial boards for networking?
Answer: Yes, provided one of the boards is of your own design and fabrication. Commercial wireless modules can be used provided they are integrated into your own design.
Must each board have a unique identity?
Answer: It does not have to be hard-coded but you must use some form of addressing.
