Report No. ARL-TR-8279
Authors: Jacob Tyo; Jesse Kovach
Date/Pages: January 2018; 91 pages
Abstract: Open Standards for Unattended Sensors (OSUS) allows rapid device integration and interchangeability with larger systems through a standardized set of services that lets Open Source Gateway Initiative-compliant bundles execute on any OSUS platform. This report highlights some of the most important principles for proficiency in OSUS development and some of the benefits of implementing an OSUS controller as the central processing platform in a smart sensing device. The setup, development, and testing of OSUS plug-ins will be discussed through the analysis of 2 existing plug-ins and a walkthrough of a typical plug-in-development cycle.
