Broadcasting of the event live via Internet

The ARGO vehicle has been equipped with two cellular modems GSM connected to the Vision Laboratory of the Dipartimento di Ingegneria dell'Informazione in Parma. Thanks to this link, both up-to-date news and images acquired by a camera installed into the driving cabin were broadcasted live from the vehicle to the Internet at the following web address: http://MilleMiglia.CE.UniPR.IT.

To demonstrate the high interest of both the scientific community, mass-media, and the general public, during the tour the web site got more than 350.000 contacts and more than 3000 Mbyte of information were transferred, with a peak of 16.000 contacts per hour during the first day of the tour.
