1. Introduction to Avian Carriers. Gjert Hole and Svein Arne Rosendal
Gjert and Svein Arne gave us a thorough introduction to pigeons. We visited
their pigeons, and took some pictures for documentation purposes.
2. Formation of CPIP WG
We all agreed that the project needs to be done. Members of the WG will be
the participants of the meeting, possibly with more members added later.
3. WG plan, responsibilities.
Svein Arne Rosendal and Gjert Hole agreed to take responsibility for research
of the physical transmission of the avian carriers and the mechanism of
attachment of the packets to the legs of the avian carriers. BLUG will take
care of the interface between the computers and the avian carriers.
The due date of the implentation was set to april 28th 2001, when a public
demonstration is to be held. This is subject to be dependent on weather
conditions in april, for the training of the avian carriers.
4. Current and future activities
Karl Magnus and Vegard are in the process of acquiring scanners to be used, and
will start researching OCR and Linux ASAP. Svein Arne and Gjert will
find two suitable transmission endpoints and inform/ask the responsible persons
at those locations. Svein Arne and Gjert will also start researching the
attachment method of the packets to the legs of the pigeons.
