Frelih will present the FRIDA V. (Free Ride Data Acquisition Vehicle), a rugged and comfortable bicycle equipped for efficient exploration and mapping of public urban spaces. It carries a small computer, GPS positioning device, 802.11 wireless network transceiver and a basic audiovisual recording unit. The consolidated software and hardware assembly enables automated mapping of uncovered wireless networks, easy creation of location tagged media and opportunistic synchronization with a server resource on the internet. FRIDA V builds new views of the city, by creating mapped objects through electronic data collected during exploratory bike rides and then processing this data into various forms of visualisation.
