Some 3 years ago, while driving my car on the way to a client, I thought about the Internet and connectivity. I remembered that sometimes I get bad or no reception at all. This must of happened to you, at least once, while on the road, your mobile reception drops and you lose your internet connectivity.
And so, I was thinking about creating a wide range internet connectivity network, using car-to-car and public transportation vehicles as routes for the network. So, the more players you have on the network, the stronger and more stable it is. For several reasons, back then, I drop this idea and moved on to other projects.
This week, in Portugal, VENIAM was rising, a wireless network was created of WiFi vehicles and public transportation locataions, with the potential of creating a truly smart city.
