This presentation will be about possible ways to connect embedded systems to the infrastructure in a wireless way. We will introduce the collaboration between Arduino and Telefonica I+D as well as the Arduino ADK board as two possible ways to communicate between your embedded project and the net.
David and Francisco will be bringing some GSM/GPRS prototypes and the equivalent in ADK boards to explore during the event. Participants who wish to work with these should bring their own Android devices.
