Radiance is a set of tools which provide an advanced lighting simulation software package. It allows very detailed definition of materials' and light sources' properties through the use of advanced techniques like brdf and ies files, as well as a powerful mathematical scripting language, resulting in accurate renderings of scenes which are usually imported from CAD and 3D modelers. It uses the hybrid approach of Monte Carlo and deterministic ray tracing to achieve a reasonably accurate result in a reasonable time.
DiaNa is a Perl framework designed to process a huge amount of data, performing from very easy to very complex tasks in a very efficient, spreadsheet-like, batch fashion. DiaNa also features an interactive Perl/Tk GUI, layered on the top of several batch shell-scripts. The DiaNa syntax is a very small and orthogonal superset of the underlying Perl syntax, which allows, for example, comfortable addressing of file tokens and profitable use of file formats throughout the data processing.
OpenBeacon is a open and generic design for an active wireless transceiver device hardware that operates in the 2.4GHz ISM band. The tag contains a unique serial number, but may have other information like acceleration measurement. The OpenBeacon tag is designed as a transceiver device, and therefore both transmits and receives radio waves. The intention of this project is to offer a wide range of use cases such as visitor or item tracking and wireless remote control with a free self-contained and low-cost RFID design. It enables wireless remote control application and ultra low power wireless meshing nodes.
Visualization of Protein Ligand Graphs (VPLG) uses a graph-based model to describe the structure of proteins on the super-secondary structure level. A protein-ligand graph is computed from the atomic coordinates in a PDB file and the secondary structure assignments of the DSSP algorithm. In this graph, vertices represent secondary structure elements (SSEs, usually alpha helices and beta strands) or ligand molecules, while the edges model contacts and relative orientations between them. The graphs can be visualized, written to a database, and saved in a text-based file format.
