Dear competitors,
dear Matteo,

I am replying to two questions one of our competitors made, I hope he 
does not mind if I quote part of his text:

1. Do you know what are the channels used by the nearby Wi-Fi access 
Is there a channel that with less interferences that a competitor system 
should use preferably?

Unfortunately I can't tell you precisely. The lab is located outside the 
university's buildings, but it's not very far from them, so some 
interferences are more than probable (consider that it's a 
telecommunications faculty !).
We have a wireless LAN within the house that can be switched off in case 
you need it.

2. Where are located the Ethernet and power plugs? Are they represented 
by the red-green things on the living lab map? I count 9 of them inside 
the experiment area and 2 in the two rooms on the left, is that correct?

The red-green things are the pillars of the structure, the plugs are 
spread almost everywhere, say approximately every 3 meters you have one 
box. If you have very short cables consider that you have plugs in the 
corners except the one near the bathroom. I hope this information is 

Best regards and see you soon !
