Subject [DISCUSS] new incubator project Apache IOT
Date Tue, 31 Jan 2017 02:35:48 GMT
I know IOT is a super hot buzz word but here me out. This is not one of
those attempts to brand a some random piece of software as IOT :)

When working with hardware there are a few common protocols. SPI, I2C, and
GPIO. That are supported by a majority of the electronics
http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Maxim-Integrated/MAX31725MTA+/?qs=g0UVtq9Ld0OAg4p2QdgbSw%3D%3D&gclid=CPz0uPCr69ECFdaFswodwrEDtQ

It is very difficult, if not impossible, to find quality implementations of
the software side of these protocols that have Apache licences.

If you are working with a something like the Rasp PI your go-to library is
GPL
http://pi4j.com/license.html.

My proposal would be the Apache IOT project (could get a better name like
IOT WIRE). We would provide the software to speak I2C, GPIO, Modbus.
Support could be either c, java, or both.

Let me know if you think this is a good idea. I think its really important,
as you really cant do the IOT without being able to talk to the things.

If anyone is interested I would love to discuss it further.

Thanks,
Edward
