Project 2010: Testing Data Transfer Over Plant Roots






 The text of "Romeo and Juliet" was sent between the two computers using the serial interface via the various media listed in the individual experiments below:


Note 1:  Brine soaked string (10 cm length) was tested for line speed and found to be equivalent to copper wire.

Note 2:  Small, fibrous root stems were initially tested but found to have no conductivity.  Thus, a tap root structure (dandelion) was used. The result of the fourth experiment below was with dandelion root.
