|Voidwarranties acces and availablity platform V.A.A.P|
An extendable monitoring rig
This platform exists in physical and logical form so it will be created out of sensors, detectors, push buttons but will also contain decision logarithms and best practice policy.
This might all sound abstract but in practice it will be a doorbell that decides to work depending on the fact that the space is:
- which rooms are occupied
- sends mails or twitters when the space is not open etc...
- A donated soekris 4526: a 486 PC in a 5x3" form-factor (has Ethernet and could boot a custom linux install on limited flash memory)
- An arduino doing the low-end physical monitoring of input gathered by some sensors in the space. Interfacing the arduino directly serially with the soekris board? That would be cool. The COM port might be usable. Some help is needed to pull this off.
