- summary Introduction to Souliss framework.
The wiki contains all the information needed to setup a Souliss network, it include details on supported architectures and implementations.
Brief about Souliss
Souliss is build over three layer that builds a complete network of nodes with distributed logics and functionality, all nodes can exchange data in peer-to-peer and there is no need for a central node that coordinate logics and communications.
Thaks to its scalable structure the functionality of Souliss can be moved over different nodes or merged on a single one, the best solution can be oriented to the network size and requirements.
A flexible installation is a simple goal thanks to the implementation build in layers. From the user point of view, these layers are not directly used, because are embedded into the Souliss API.
Communication runs over vNet, it build a virtual flat network, carrying out bridging and routing over different communication media (wired and wireless) at a lower level, without require any special setup of your own network.
vNet include drivers for many transceiver and potentially runs over all media controllers that has a collision detection mechanism.
Is an event-based and stateless protocol, is binary and tiny and allows peer to peer communication between nodes. Is implemented also in the Android application giving a straightforward connection, the event-based mechanism save battery and offer fast interaction.
Logics and Gateways
Things handling (lights, windows, gate, ...) is build as _typical_, a set of pre-configured logics that has also an available interface in the Android application. All nodes can provide a list of _typical_ used in it.
Gateways are additional protocol to communicate with external application, like Modbus SCADA system or HTTP enabled devices.
There are several platforms available that can run Souliss, all are based on AVR microcontrollers and has different transceiver of I/O extension. There are several Olimex platform that runs Souliss:
Olimexino-328 (Arduino Duemilanove compatible)
Olimexino-32U4 (Arduino Leonardo compatible)
AVR-T32U4? (Arduino Leonardo compatible)
MOD-ENC28J60 (Ethernet Trasceiver)
MOD-WIFI (WiFi? Transceiver)
... (wireless modules are coming)
MOD-IO (Relay and opto-isolated inputs)
MOD-IO2 (Relay and standard inputs)
MOD-RGB (12V PWM DC Controller for LEDs and resistive loads)
