The data transmission system

The data transmission (both images and text information) on the GSM network was performed throughout the whole tour. Generally, the path was satisfactorily covered. The main problems were met in the presence of tunnels (apart from the tunnels between Firenze and Bologna, which are almost completely covered) and in the appenninic stretch of highway between Pescara and Roma. As an example, figure 4 shows the behavior of the GSM connection on the path from Brescia to Ferrara.
