Event Details

ARUP is an independent firm of designers, planners, engineers, consultants and technical specialists offering a broad range of professional services.

“We shape a better world.”

This workshop will provide an overview of location-based services and tracking systems and an introduction to mesh networking. These include RFID (radio frequency identification), NFC (near field communication) standards, wi-fi and bluetooth hacking as well as sniffing with Arduino. You will be creating a building-wide proximity sensing network with Synapse RF100 and Processing.


The workshop will offer the opportunity to hack with the Arduino and Synapse platforms to build a building-wide proximity sensing network and visualisation system.


An initial theoretical session will give an overview of mesh networking and of the available location-based services and tracking systems, including RFID, NFC and Bluetooth.


The practical session will involve the participants creating a building-wide proximity sensing network using both Arduino and bluetooth enabled mobiles and custom built radio frequency dongles.


Coming all the way from ARUP’s London office, Francesco Anselmo with local Aaron Tan will give you an experience like no other.

Participants are encouraged to bring any electronic kit that they feel would be appropriate to explore hacking.
