Wireless Mesh Demonstration

As part of Case for Community Day (an annual campus-wide event devoted to local volunteer service), Case Western Reserve University invited students from the Cleveland School of the Arts and John Hay campus to help unveil and demonstrate how wireless mesh technology can be used to address public health education on diabetes and heart disease.

In a collaborative class, students from John Hay and School of the Arts were given the challenge to find out what causes heart disease in adults. Students conducted research and featured the interactive, wireless applications and technologies used at various community organizations. The Wireless Mesh project was the first community-based network in the country and demonstrated to the world how neighborhoods can be transformed by using information technology to connect residents to each other and the assets they need to prosper.
