Code Systems - Telegraph Networks
This week, I took a dive into understanding how a telegraph device works and working with my partner, Emily, we took a stab at constructing our very own device and establishing a communication protocol.
I brushed up on Claude Shannon's Mathematical Theory of Communication, and used it to help me understand how telegraph transmissions work and to devise my own code table for the device that we built.
We tested out our telegraph device and were successful in transmitting and interpreting the message we were given!
The week after, we took it one step further and thought about how we could design a network for all of 16 of our classmate's telegraph devices to communicate.
