What WiFi work with potatoes


More and more aircraft begin to be equipped with Wi-Fi, but that does not mean that the signal is the same for everyone since each seat is intercepted by the type you are sitting next to. Thus a passenger can have four lines, while the guy that is locked in the next seat has one or none.

Boeing encountered the above problem and in wanting to offer its passengers a better service with a fairer distribution of the signal, it instructed a team of engineers to start testing until they find a solution.

Their tests were done at Seattle's Boeing Assessment Center. Much of the testing was done on a parked aircraft, and the engineers needed something to play the role of passengers. Who would be the passengers?

Sacks full of potatoes were a fairly cheap solution, they do not need breaks, they do not use the bathroom, they do not want water, and they interact with the electronic properties of the signal just like the human body.

The method was originally developed by Boeing to ensure that the radio signals transmitted within a cabin are safe and do not interfere with the aircraft's electrical signals. It is now used for better signal coordination that can be transmitted safely throughout the cabin, he says wired.

This means that those who are crammed into 21B will have enough signal to surf, forgetting our exuberant neighbor.
