Ideal Design

Current Design

The key difference between this and the ideal version is the lack of an IO bus. Instead, sensors are plugged into serial ports on the wearble. The Event Filters are present as individual applications that read from the serial ports and communicate with the Sensor Modules by the use of named pipes. This makes startup more complex as it is important for the Event Filter applications to be started before any on the Sensor Modules are loaded, but it allows us to test our event driven architecture.

Information about writing EventMan applications can be found at the Event Manager Applications Writers Guide.
