Our previous Wi-Fi tests were very successful, although they only tested the signal strength at a range, not the usability or quality of the connection.

Now that I have installed the video streaming system, Aaron and I were able to perform a streaming range test today. Considering the NUC (the main computational unit of the S.A.R.T v2) is not mobile yet, we connected a laptop to the S.A.R.T network to test the range.

As in the previous WiFi range tests, we tested how far we could walk with the laptop before the signal dropped. The stream was usable until we reached the entrance to the hub, so approximately 60 metres.

This is a vast improvement over streaming on the S.A.R.T v1 (Raspberry Pi), which had very limited range and terrible footage quality.
