A proof of concept written in C to demonstrate the use of the Sony PSP as a warXing instrument for WiFi hotspot data collection.


Integrated as a plugin to the Sony XMB interface to allow collection of data while listening to music, watching videos, playing games, or any other activity which did not utilize the wireless hardware. WiFi network information such as highest rssi, security level, ssid and gps location at time of highest rssi could all be logged to a text file on the memory stick.


GPS data was acquired using hardware such as the Holux GPSlim240 interfaced to the Sony PSP with a modified headphone remote cable.
