The student implements a Java-based gateway that runs on the Raspberry Pi to enable a plug and play mechanism for building sensors. New sensors are recognized and registered automatically in the MOST framework. The final parameter setting is done via an application, that will either be an Android or cross-platform web application.
Benefit for the Student
The student will participate in a real world home automation scenario. This includes the opportunity to work with technologies form various disciplines (distributed systems, mobile development).
Benefit for the Project
This work is a first step towards a plug and play building sensor registration. Combined with other projects the goal is to realize a cloud-based building monitoring service with minimal configuration efforts.
Good Java programming skills, basic knowledge in distributed systems
