  1. Sven,

    I am fascinated by the work that you are doing. I am working for a small non-profit in western Massachusetts trying to obtain some preliminary data about traffic patters around our city. I have taken a liking to your idea of using probe requests to track/count passerby’s. I would love for you to get back to me about your project. I would love to implement this in 12 locations around the city; storing these requests in a SQL database. Id first like to be able to track the movement with the Pi and worry about storing the data at a later time. So shoot me an email! I would love to hear from you.


  2. I am working on a project in which we are trying to track movement using RSSI data. We have set up raspberry pis as wireless access points and are trying to set them up to passively intake wifi packets that contain RSSI data. We know a lot of people have done this with bluetooth but we want to focus on wifi. Do you have any advice on how to configure the raspberry pis to passively intake probe requests and store the RSSI data?

  3. Hey, in regards to your article “Tracking Devices via Raspberry Pi (Part Two)” I was wondering how did you manage to get the raspberry pi to show the probe requests. If you could email me some more info on your process that would be greatly appreciated

  4. Hello Sven,

    I read your article about getting a Raspberry Pi to display probe request from devices that are in its vicinity. I was hoping for more information on this as I am working on a similar project. The project is essentially data analysis on the data that is connected from the probe request. If you could provide me more information as to how exactly you program the Pi to display the probe request, that would be great.
