Why New Daedalus?

Daedalus was the mythical great architect and artificer of the classical world. Today, embedded intelligence is enabling the most profound changes in the way we create and use buildings since his day.

Building Intelligence meets the Intelligent Building. The Intelligent Building negotiates with the Intelligent Grid. How will this transform how we interact with the physical world?

Open Source oBIX advances

Hello everyone,

Version 0.2.04 of oX oBIX server has been released.

It adds experimental support for external modules, a stand-alone sdk that simplifies module development and expands the documentation.

The feedback to the original specification asked for the following feature:

"My big wish, make it possible for oBIX clients to add data to the server so clients can integrate with each other using this server"

Providing an experimental implementation of external modules is a step to achieve that. Although the sample in ox-sdk uses java, you could use any other language such as python or C to accomplish that, since the interface (which will evolve), is REST-based PUT.

There is a quick start that makes it easy to try the server out:
http://obix-server.sourceforge.net/oxUserGuide.html#chapter-quick-start

There is a step-by-step set of instructions of how to build your external module.
http://obix-server.sourceforge.net/oxUserGuide.html#section-Module-Creation-Walk-Through-External-Module
http://obix-server.sourceforge.net/oxUserGuide.html#section-Module-Creation-Walk-Through-Internal-Module

To read more, please go to http://obix-server.sourceforge.net/ which also contains pointers to downloads and release notes.

I'll keep updating the demo server with each release: it will be running two simulator modules:

Your feedback is greatly appreciated.
