Speaker Bio

The performance and low-cost of hobbyist computers such as Raspberry Pi and Beagleboard is truly amazing and they are already finding their way into commercial products.  Coupled with open source software such as Sedona Framework and Project Haystack can we now achieve low or no-cost control and data modeling for our buildings?  This presentation will focus on the various hardware platforms available today along with their performance and cost metrics.  The choice of operating systems may determine what open source or free-download apps you can run.  Examples for the building automation market are given along with the cautions when choosing these devices for commercial use.
