Wardriving for ZigBee

Travis Goodspeed has assembled this wardriving project covering the ZigBee wireless protocol. It is designed around the radio module from the TelosB, which is used to sniff for nearby ZigBee/802.15.4 transmissions. This module is connected via serial to a Roving Networks RN42 module which provides a Bluetooth connection to the Nokia N9. Travis’ GoodFET firmware natively supports the TelosB module, and complete instructions for building and flashing onto the module can be found here. He also developed both a command line and GUI client for the Nokia N9 in order to control the TelosB.

Travis states: “The result is a complete wardriving solution for my Nokia N9, allowing for efficient mapping of ZigBee usage when walking or driving.”
