Mobile app to configure Wifi on embedded boards

Status: open
Supervisor: Rainer Planinc

Problem Statement

Configuration of Wifi credentials for non-technical user is often quite challenging. Available devices on the market (e.g. WiFi extender, Google Chromecast, Amazon FireTV stick) often provide a configurable interface to connect them easily to existing WiFis.


The goal of this internship (Praktikum) is the development of an Android app, allowing the user to connect to embedded boards and to provide the WiFi credentials. Moreover, the App need to provide an easy to use interface, good usability as well as need to cover problems when used in practise (e.g. poor WiFi coverage).
