Welcome to the uracoli Blog

µracoli stands for microcontroller radio communications library and is intended to be a package that demonstrates capabilities and usage of Atmel's IEEE-802.15.4 radio transceivers AT86RF{230,231,212} in combination with AVR 8 bit microcontrollers (e.g. ATmega16, ATmega1281, ATmega128RFA1, ...).

Chemnitzer Linuxtage 2013

As a good tradition, the Chemnitz Linux Days take place on a sunny march weekend.

Amazingly there is more embedded stuff from year to year. In 2013 the Raspberry-Pi is the gadget of the year. As a surprise there was Contiki/6LowPan project by the Open Source Domotics Group from Vienna/Austria. At the booth they did show the available hardware, e.g. 220V light switches, power outlets with power metering capabilities included and other gadgets around home automation.

On the saturday in the evening there is the get-together party of all contributors of the Chemnitz Linux Days, a good place to talk with the "makers" of this event.
This years cultural act was the percussion group Drummed Boxes from Chemnitz.
Our presentation about how to integrate sensor data via SNMP into large scale IT monitoring systems like Icinga or Nagios had quite a lot of visitors and was well received by the audience. The slides and a µracoli-app-note will be online soon.

However, we want to say a huge thank you for the professional and perfect organisation of the event to all members of the Chemnitz Linux Days Team. Looking forward to see you again next year in march.
