anuejn: sure

se6ast1an
did you collect the thoughts/requirements somewhere?
09:48
se6ast1an
anyway here are some ideas, feel free to compare/extend the ones you made up so far but I guess its pretty straight forward/obvious
09:48
se6ast1an
the remote needs to be able to send commands to the camera to set sensor/image parameters
09:48
se6ast1an
change expsoure time, gain, etc.
09:49
se6ast1an
but also commands to capture and store a still image
09:49
se6ast1an
into a preconfigured directory
09:49
se6ast1an
in the future also to start/stop recording (eg. over USB3)
09:50
se6ast1an
the other communication direction the camera should send information to the remote
09:50
se6ast1an
that could be current sensor parameters like exposure time, gain, etc.
09:50
se6ast1an
temperatures in different places of the hardware
09:51
se6ast1an
free space remaining for capturing still images
09:51
se6ast1an
or histogram data of the live view (probably the most bandwidth demanding I can think of currently)
10:10
Bertl
in addition to that, there was the plan to have 'per remote' configurations for the camera
10:11
Bertl
which could be easily done with unique identifiers for the remote hardware
10:12
Bertl
there is also the plan to extend the remote with modules/addons, which probably should be identified/reported to the camera
10:12
Bertl
and most likely the remote needs to know what modules/plugins/shields are available on the camera as well
10:14
Bertl
for the low level communication a bidirectional 'serial' interface is probably the best choice, as it is already available now and also quite easy to do over USB (via CDC)
10:23
se6ast1an
good points
10:35
se6ast1an
note: we want to resume weekly irc meetings again on mondays, just sent an email reminder

Unique identifiers, on an SD-card?
12:24
Bertl
hmm?

"Unique identifiers from the remote hardware"
13:03
Bertl
there is no SD card planned for the Remote
13:04
comradekingu
Unique identifiers over network sounds bad, I'd rather have serial number and config+actual identifier on SD-card
13:04
comradekingu
Is it local then?
13:04
Bertl
not really following you here ...
13:05
Bertl
we have the AXIOM (Beta) Camera with SD card, etc
13:05
comradekingu
How do you uniquely identify the remote?
13:05
Bertl
and we have to AXIOM Remote which is connected via Serial/USB
13:06
Bertl
and each Remote will get an unique identifier (somehow)
13:07
comradekingu
I think maybe USB has that
13:09
BAndiT1983|away
changed nick to: BAndiT1983
13:10
Bertl
doesn't matter, we will have some kind of unique identifier in the remote hardware anyway (worst case programmed into one of the MCUs)
13:13
comradekingu
It could present a USB HID storage device that has a string and some config to alter?
13:14
BAndiT1983
changed nick to: BAndiT1983|away
13:14
Bertl
yes, but that would make it USB specific which we probably want to avoid to be able to use rs232 or rs485 as well
13:28
comradekingu
:))))
