I came across a technique of getting Channel State Information (CSI) via Intel Wireless 5300 adapter under Ubuntu Linux system. Link:http://dhalperi.github.io/linux-80211n-csitool/ Linux 802.11n CSI Tool . While being able to run a Linux system using a micro SD card as well as inserting a full-length wireless adapter, is Galileo able to get CSI also? Is there anyone working on this direction? I would be thrilled if so.
I just checked the 5300 wireless adapter and it comes in multiple presentations, including Mini-PCIe, the one compatible with the Galileo board. Even though we haven't tested this adapter with the Galileo, I believe you'll just need the right driver for it to work, so it should run fine with the Galileo board. Is it necessary to use a full-length wireless adapter for this project?
We haven't tested this before, and given that we don't have an Intel Wireless 5300 adapter at the moment, we aren't able to run any test. Doing some research I found that the tool was tested by its developers using kernel 2.6.36, so I'm not sure if it's going to work with your Galileo, but we encourage you to test it and share the results with the community.
