The article reports that Chicago developer Mark Schlenker steps into the CADMobile. John Jurewicz, a local architect, shows him a set of drawings. They make a few changes, and Jurewicz taps off a few mouse clicks on his computer. Schlenker, approving the revisions, hands over a check to get started on a building renovation project. Jurewicz recently parked the truck in downtown Chicago and made changes to a permit application on the fly. The heart of the system is a custom data router that can run three wireless connections simultaneously.
