It is a tournament with social character. If you are a mesh networking

The goal of the WirelessBattleMesh (WBM) events is to set-up hands-on
testbed for each available mesh routing protocol with a standard test
procedure for the different mesh networks. During the different WBM

testing tools for PHY/MAC radio layers (drivers, scripts and PHY
This years Battlemesh will take place from 1st - 7th May 2016 in Porto,
