When you connect the base station via USB to your computer, it will show up as a network device - you can then browse to it with your webbrowser to manage your wireless nodes.

  • configuration of nodes (nodeids; what sensors to read; what actuators to control; some simple preprocessing of data (activity, thresholding))
  • documentation of the installed version
  • configuration of communication mode to user’s computer (osc/hid/midi)
  • configuration of wireless settings (pan id, channel)
  • updating the system
  • download a backup of your custom setups
  • updating firmware on the attached node
  • selecting available advanced sensors (automatically put in the bits of firmware needed for the required sensors ; template structure for firmware in the background (header ; setup ; loop)
  • selecting available actuator APIs (to B, with curve, in X time; standard lag filter)
  • advanced firmware editing (custom template elements)
  • custom made firmware configuration is stored to the node, so you can recover it; and node has an identification of it

In the web interface you can also select the setup to use upon startup - so once you made your project, you do not need to go through the web interface each time. So from then on, it will be plug-and-play.
