The VSCP & Friends release version 1.0.0 code name “Neon” will be out in October if all goes well. The documentation for the VSCP Daemon is available as a preview here.
From this release Windows will again be supported.
Last day to put in an application for the IDEA IoT Challenge so i put in one for the VSCP & Friends framework. Bu as soon as I send it away I ask myself “How can something that is ready to deliver today have a chance in a competition like this when everyone else just still talks about what IoT is!? Stupid of me… To late to withdraw it I suppose… 😉
But if you have an IoT idea go ahead, fill in the info.
If you have the VSCP Daemon on a Linux machine you can use the DigiTemp software to collect temperature from 1-Wire sensors. The information is logged in a file by DigiTemp ,this article describes how to make this data come to work in a modern world.
I am working hard on adding a REST interface to the VSCP daemon this week. Formats supported are plain text, CSV, XML, JSON and JSONP and you can send event/read events/write variables/read variables and read tabular data. I personally prefer the old tcp/ip interface but I know many will like this interface better. Also from this version SSL will be available as an alternative to the web/rest/websocket/tcp/ip interfaces in addition to the password and remote machine validation mechanism previously available. Making this the most secure solution available.
