As a frequent traveler (for work and research), currently, a lot of this travel is by plane. While in flight, I have to have my devices (that are with me obviously) in flight mode. This is a standard regulation for flights, so this question may be a bit of a stretch.
My situation is similar to what AstroDan mentions in his comment here on his question "Is there a way to turn on large numbers of IoT devices remotely?", where I am monitoring a set of small solar power monitors (that I inherited from a retiring professor).
Asides from recording the data, these small devices need to be monitored to make sure they don't overheat (if the cooling systems fail), which at the very least causes a distortion in the monitoring results and at worst, cause the device to burnout.
Is there a way to be able to monitor (real-time) the devices while on a plane?
