	CLUG Programmers' Special Interest Group Meeting - 13th October 2011

Date:		13th October 2011 (Second Thursday of the month)

Time:		19:00 - 21:00 (or when it finishes)

Speaker:	Bob Edwards

Abstract:	In a brazen retro move, Bob will present a discussion on
		his XBee daemon to support Home Automation (HA), written
		in C... 
		XBees (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XBee) are low-cost
		IEEE802.15.4 wireless modules that are normally used to
		replace wired asynchronous serial links. However, the
		XBee module is also capable of most of the functions
		typically required for HA without needing a local micro. 
		To co-ordinate a Personal Area Network (PAN) of XBees in
		a multi-drop configuration, a small daemon is required.
		Bob will discuss XBee's, the API mode and some of the
		standard C/POSIXy things in his daemon: select(),
		socket(), hand-crafted Finite State Machines (FSM) etc. 

Venue:		Room N101
		Computer Science and Information Technology Building
		North Road
		The Australian National University

		See http://clug.org.au/ for more directions and a map

Food/drink:	Pizza and soft drink/juice. Come hungry, and bring 
		about $6 to cover the cost of your share if you 
		want some.
