combining ad-hoc networks and infrastructure

Today, we brainstormed a lot about the possibility of combining the wireless network at EPFL with an ad-hoc interaction. Mainly we are interested in this topic to study the location awareness effect on the reasoning and problem solving of a group structured task.

In this context we are looking for a specific task to give to the user of such system so that we can measure different performances and reflect on the topic.

The choice of a mixed architecture seemed to enhance the kind of interaction we can expect and lead us to a nice definition of the scope. However, we still did not come out with a definition of the particular task we want to work around and subsequently developing the interface for an undefined problem is highly complicated … 🙂

Any idea, please shout!
