Test gps


With the help of Mark from @MarkStanleyUK and Mike the Bee of RLab, Reading’s Hackspace, we are experimenting with a GPS sensor to put our @Reading2016 Information Tricycle on
The Things Network in Reading

You can see where the GPS sensor has been (and when, relative to today) and The Things Network gateways that were used, and you can get a sense of the relative SNR (Signal to Noise Ratio) and RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indication)

Select what you’d like mapped

Move around the map to see tricycles in different colours indicating the different gateways.
Min SNR: Max SNR: Min RSSI: Max RSSI: (the closer to 0 the better for RSSI – is the right thing being shown here?)

With the help of Mark from @MarkStanleyUK and Mike the Bee of RLab, Reading's Hackspace, we are experimenting with a GPS sensor to put our @Reading2016 Information Tricycle on The Things Network in Reading.

Initially, the box was carried by hand or stationed on the tricycle's sidekick (a Brompton foldup bicycle). Now (from late March 2016)it's mounted on the tricycle for real.

You can see where the GPS sensor has been (and when, relative to today) and The Things Network gateways that were used, and you can get a sense of the relative SNR (Signal to Noise Ratio) and RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indication) by the opacity of a tricycle, depending on which map you choose to display.

Highest ever Splat Medusa score

Our tent at the Festival was buzzing with visitors – and one scored a straight 100 on Splat Medusa, a record. We also had dozens of Ure Museum mugs painted, lots of interest in the East Reading Connections stand, the London Road Heritage Trail, Ladybird Book and Artist in the Harris Garden mini-apps. Thanks to the Festival organisers for a good day. You can play splat.imuse.org.uk from the comfort of your own iPad (or even PC) if you’d like some practice.

iMuse & iOpener move to RG spaces

The iMuse and iOpener programmes run by the charity Access-Ability Communications Technology (AACT) are moving to RG spaces in Summer 2015. iMuse works with museums and galleries locally to seek lowcost ways of using mobile phones and tablets to make visits more fun and accessible for everyone. iOpener is experimenting with making online trails and encouraging people to make their own around Reading.
