Send binary data with ICE

Ice provides a communication solution that is simple to understand and easy to program with. Yet, despite its simplicity, Ice is flexible enough to accommodate even the most demanding and mission-critical applications.

ICE framework has a few primitive types to send data with the interfaces. Many times you need send binary data as JPG images, objects, music files, etc.The following source (C++) show how you can send easily binary data with ICE.

Asus Xtion: usb soft reset

If you have an Asus Xtion pro live and usually you work under GNU/Linux, perhaps you notice than sometimes you can't read from Asus Xtion because the usb bus has a problem. Unfortunately the only way to solve this problem is  disconnect and connect (physically) the USB connector of the Asus Xtion. But what happens if you don't have physical access to the machine? Well, I want to show you how you can reset the usb bus of Xtion with a simple script.

Video Surveillance HD: Raspberrypi + PiCam + Android

The video-surveillance field is active many years ago, but there is only products that show image and little else. It's need to add intelligence to surveillance tasks. We are committed to create technology to care for people and avoid dangerous situations. For this we have created a surveillance solution with high intelligence.

· Do you want to know if your baby stands or falls from the crib as soon as possible? Even at night without lights? · Do you want to know if your baby leaves the room game or leaves the house? · Do you want to detect if someone is close to the cash register? · Do you want to create alarms in 3D space to keep your staff safe?

We are working with intelligent sensors to detect these situations and send alarms to the smartphone. These intelligent sensors allow us create 3D alarms in a house/office and provide a safe environment 24 hours per day.

For the moment, the first prototype of surveillance shows how it's possible access to RaspBerryPi with PiCam using and Android tablet. We are using a standar HD camera without night vision to offer a standar solution for daily situations.

RPI Camera Board

It's a great pleasure have this cool gadget. This is the new RPI Camera Board, the essential part in every RPI project! The Raspberry Pi Camera Module is a custom designed add-on for Raspberry Pi. It attaches to Raspberry Pi by way of one of the two small sockets on the board upper surface. This interface uses the dedicated CSI interface, which was designed especially for interfacing to cameras. The CSI bus is capable of extremely high data rates, and it exclusively carries pixel data.
