== firmware ==

+
The current firmware is written by clifford and chrysn and is currently capable of both being a buzzer and being a base station; the base station can control all the hardware in the buzzers and receive events. It can be checked out from [http://github.com/Metalab/hsc2011/tree/master/firmware the firmware part of the project repository].
+
 
+
During firmware development, a serial protocol was developed, which is documented [http://github.com/Metalab/hsc2011/blob/master/firmware/README.serialprotocol alongside the firmware].
+
 
+
Open issues are in descending priority:
+
 
+
* separate timeout arrays for login and event
+
* redirect messages for controlling the base station itself
+
* fine-tuning timing for re-sends and responses (may only need validation)
+
* melody api
+
* read/write commands for VM
+
* enhanced get/set status packages for VM
+
* reading battery status using new firmware
+
* reading RSSI state
+
* multicasts
+
* <del>removing arduino specific stuff to reduce resource usage</del> (not a priority unless resources become a real problem)
+
 
+
== PC server ==
+
 
+
There is a proof-of-concept implementation of a serial controller and a simple voting game for debugging purposes [http://github.com/Metalab/hsc2011/blob/master/firmware/demohost.py in the repository]. It demonstrates that the firmware can also do logins, handle disconnected clients and respond to events.

Aktuelle Version vom 2. Mai 2011, 21:54 Uhr

< HSC2011

The EduBuzzer has software run in three parts:

  • Firmware running on the ATMega controllers (for hardware control and radio communication)
    • The firmware can run additional code inside a virtual machine for tasks like LED fading, meldoy beeping or even autonomous games.
  • Middleware running natively on the computer (for serving the firmware, managing communication and for persistence)
  • A Frontend running in a web browser (containing the game logic itself)

The communication through the whole software is described in the communication documentation.
