WiFi car proximity networking
After installing my car computer, I started thinking about some entrepreneurial ideas, and figured you guys had already thought of them, and will just ask what progess has been made so far.
So we all know about wifi cruising to pick up net connections...
but if I plug a wireless router into my carputer, then it should be possible with the right programming to set up carputer proximity networks.
The connection program would continually ping the 192.168.0.1-10 ip addresses to see if anyone has connected, then if this person has my program installed, then some port will allow the connection, and then voila!
Is there some technology that does this without needing to install my hypothetical connection program?
(the wireless router goes in the car too)
right, so I won't use any security. I mean, i think we're not far in the future enough to have carputer hackers. i hope.
so once i have the connection up, then i suppose that will be enough to run your average P2P chat program. Either way, i need to know the IP of the people who have joined my network,
and if I write a program to continutally scan for the typical DHCP IP addresses, then if that person has a program of mine, i will be able to connect on the correct port, etc. etc.
Then i will sell carputers with my program to familys with multiple cars that want to video conference while they drive, or something silly like that.
actually i wouldnt write something that already exists. thats where the entrepreneurial part comes in.
