Current sensor and actuator support

OpenSensorHub support for new sensors and actuators is continuously being added  by the OSH Team and other contributors. In addition to providing support for specific sensors and actuators, we are also building helper capabilities to make it easier to bring in new sensor and actuator drivers (e.g. an Arduino library, support for various communication protocols, […]

Arduino Sensor Library

Using a combination of the OpenSensorHub (OSH) Arduino helper classes (https://github.com/opensensorhub/osh-arduino) and the Adafruit Unified Sensor Library ( https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit_Sensor ), it is straightforward to develop drivers to enable all supported Arduino sensors to register with OSH SOS-T. Most took no more than 10-15 minutes to add. The following Arduino sensors are currently supported by OSH and […]

Vaisala Weather Transmitter

The Vaisala Weather Transmitter WXT520 is an advanced and highly-configurable system of weather sensors all in a single package. Because of its compact size, this weather transmitter is well-suited for dynamic field deployment as well as more permanent deployment, making it ideal for integration into the SensorWeb. The WXT520 is capable of measuring wind speed/direction […]

RPi GeoCams with OSH OnBoard

We require a suite of inexpensive, geospatially-aware, video cameras that could run OpenSensorHub (OSH) onboard and store and/or stream in real time, video and navigation data (i.e. location and orientation). The OSH team thus developed the GeoCam based on Raspberry Pi (RPi) using the RPi HD video camera, an Adafruit GPS (with or without antenna), and an […]

Welcome

Welcome to the blog for OpenSensorHub – an open source, open standards software project building a powerful platform for the easy deployment of sensors, actuators, and processes from the Internet of Things (IoT) in to a highly interoperable SensorWeb.  OpenSensorHub harnesses the power of the Open Geospatial Consortium Sensor Web Enablement (OGC SWE) architecture in an open source […]
