openNetcam open source project recruiting developers

Started by bobicanprogram April 2, 2009
A new open source project has started with the aim of producing an
open framework for embedded Linux based video camera systems.

http://www.opennetcam.net/

Developers in this project will get to play in a very diverse
sandbox.     The framework itself will be layered on top of the ultra
lightweight SIMPL toolkit (http://www.icanprogram.com/simpl) and when
completed will be essentially a webservices lite.    There will be
opportunities to get involved in embedded Linux.   We haven't yet
selected the preferred platform although the senior developer already
has some boards in mind.     There will be opportunities to get
involved in creating derivatives of the Puppy Linux distribution which
contain the openNetcam code.   The preferred webserver will be
lighttpd and there will be opportunities to create a SIMPL plugin for
that webserver.     The main development languages will be C and C++.

The hope is that once this framework gets far enough along we'll go
seeking industry support.  Who knows maybe at that stage we'll be able
to put in place a developer compensation scheme along the lines of the
X-prize approach.   ie.  developers get paid for working, tested code
they produce rather than for their potential to produce.

If any of this interests you (or if you know of someone who might be
interested) don't hesitate to contact me offlist and I'll give you
more details.

Check out what Elphel <http://elphel.com> is doing. They have an open-source Linux-based network camera. The open source includes the FPGA that interfaces with the imager chip. -- David M. Palmer dmpalmer@email.com (formerly @clark.net, @ematic.com)
