Loudspeaker-Based Community-Run Communication Network in Norte del Cauca, Colombia (Colombia)

What is the project about?

This project aims to contribute to the protection of lives and the territory within a humanitarian shelter, through a community-run system of loudspeaker-based communication technology using internet of things (IoT) devices, e.g. Raspberry Pi. This will enhance the existing nodes located between La Finca la Trinidad and La Finca el Barrancón in the village of Lomitas, extending the network to two points in the village of La Balsa to create a free and open community network.
