Ad-hoc networking possibilities
We are working on an autonomous network topology maintenance scenario where the nodes (i.e., drones) should be interconnected through the Wi-Fi ad-hoc mode. We are having the same issue as Yuezhan mentioned here: https://gitlab.com/voxl-public/other/documentation/-/issues/23. I see that there is no native support for this on VOXL, but is there any way or a workaround that lets us use Wi-Fi in ad-hoc mode? If not, can Bluetooth (e.g., forming piconets) be useful in this case? Any bit of help would be awesome!
@Umut-Can-Çabuk It is possible to set the wlan0 to "ad-hoc mode", but channel allocation can't be done apparently. Any help would be highly appreciated.

I'm sorry, we do not have any experience with ad-hoc mode. You could try an external wifi module that supports this. If you need to rebuild the kernel, the source code is here
