Project Examples

WiFi Communication System

Course: 16.499 - Interdisciplinary Engineering Capstone II
Instructor: John Duffy
Partner: Village Empowerment Peru Project
Partnership Description: Three students worked on capstone designs that were implemented in Peru during June 2006. Students developed designs for a WiFi prototype to be installed in Peruvian health clinics in order to enhance communication and electronic file transfers between remote clinics and the main Hospital in Huarmey. Transfer of emails and files via transceiver radio modems and PC’s in the Peruvian clinics provided communication support that has served to save lives in these remote villages.
