why building a bot
because it's stupid to drive arround with the car, lets do this other persons or systems.
and it's a new idea. ;-)
have fun with wardriving bots
if you make a packet with a wardriving bot inside, you can realy track your packet during his shipping with FedEx, DHL or with what ever you like.
and if you have a mic or camera integrated, maybe you can recive live pics and sound from the location of your wardriving bot
hard and software
our first bot is based on OpenBSD and kismet, with some homemade scripts on a WRAP or Soekis Board with 2 MiniPCI cards and external antennas.
bot is collection information with wireless and GPS (optional bluetooth and/or webcam / RFID) and store it on the local disk (in our sample a 1 GB CF card) and send this information back, if the can connect to a Wireless connection (optional with a Mobile phone). maybe he recive information about successfull data transfer, and delet the local data, or recice a software update.
we are looking for new ideas and we have to solve a lot of open points. One of the main problem is, to have enouth power druing a long time.
