CrackGuard has gone wireless!

Last week during the JIP week in La Ciotat in France, we demonstrated for the first time CrackGuard's wireless funcionality to our JIP participants. This demo version of the wireless transmission gateway can communicate with the CrackGuard sensor units and shows the data on a built-in LCD touch screen with a web based interface and stores the data locally as well. Soon, the wireless functionality will be connected with a new line of sensor units so that we are ready for testing early 2017.
