The tower features a Multitech IP67 base station with onboard 4G, WiFi and 8 channels of Lorawan, all mounted on a home grown piece of larch harvested from our own woodland. The plan is to use 2.4 and 5 GHz WIFI to communicate with the robot, live streaming data and video feeds to the control room. The Multitech box itself will be hard wired with ethernet cable to the control room.
