(Serial Ports on) Steroids enables users to execute remote C functions in a Python shell over a serial interface. It is useful for embedded system testing and industrial automation. It generates C code for the target and a Python script for the host automatically from a C header file.
BACnet is an implementation of the BACnet (Building Automation and Control Networks) protocol specifically tailored for embedded systems. BACnet itself is a standard routable protocol designed to handle communications in automation in buildings, such as air conditioning systems and other HVAC equipment.
BlueSense SDK is a software development kit for communicating with BlueSense equipment. It allows you to read out sensors or control actuators. A user-space USB driver for all platforms is included. Examples for all modules are also included. For Java and Mono/C#, there is an object-oriented interface, and for C, there is a function based interface.
Device::ParallelPort is a Perl API that allows low level access to the parallel port of most computers. It does this by using a number of drivers, which can be customized and added to, including Linux (direct and parport), Win32, Script, Dummy, and more. It also contains a number of direct access devices including an example printer and a relay controller card.
The Discrete Event Calculus Reasoner allows a programmer to add common-sense reasoning capabilities to programs. It supports deduction/temporal projection, abduction/planning, postdiction, and model finding. It allows default reasoning about action, change, space, and mental states. It is based on the event calculus, a comprehensive and highly usable logic-based formalism. It helps applications understand the world, make inferences, adapt to unexpected situations, and be more flexible.
Freedomotic is an open, flexible, scalable, mashup-oriented software system which can interact with well-known standard building automation protocols and with "do-it-yourself" solutions. It treats the Web, social networks, and frontends just like any other sensor or actuator in your automation system. For example, you can tweet your washing machine to start the washing cycle. Freedomotic leverages modern enterprise integration patterns and distributed computing architectures, along with cross-language APIs for extensions.
GNU Phantom.Home is a computer controlled home automation system. The software includes a circuit diagram for building the Phantom.Home.Controller, a simple circuit board that attaches to your PC's parallel port. Using the combination of hardware/software you can control (i.e. flip on or off) nearly any 120V device. And with a little bit of electronics know-how, you can probably control nearly any device at any voltage by modifying the circuit board to meet your needs. The simple circuit included can be created and built for around $25. The modules cost around $10 (basically a heavy duty relay).
GNU Phantom.Security is a computer-controlled security system. Using the software and a simple circuit board (diagram included) that you build, you can create a good basic security system that is computer controlled. The system can use off-the-shelf security devices like motion sensors, door magnets, and fire/smoke detectors with little to moderate modification. You can have a total of 5 devices per port. And if the machine the system is running on is connected to a LAN/WAN or the Internet, you can have it send e-mail. If you have a pager or cell phone capable of receiving e-mail, then you will have around the clock intrusion/fire detection for your home or office.
Lintouch is an implementation of HMI (Human Machine Interface) or MMI (Man Machine Interface) software framework. It features a server/client architecture, componentized design, and is platform and architecture independent. The Lintouch architecture allows you to develop your own connectivity plugins and visualization objects.
MoCo is a system that monitors and controls SCADA points, such as temperature, HVAC, power, lighting, sprinkler systems, and more. It has industrial capabilities, but is scalable from very small home systems to enterprise, world-wide ones. It works with inexpensive I/O bridges (including X10, Insteon, and 1-wire) from a number of manufacturers. It has sophisticated history logging and diverse control capabilities, as well as a 117-page implementation manual.
