Current sensor and actuator support

OpenSensorHub support for new sensors and actuators is continuously being added  by the OSH Team and other contributors. In addition to providing support for specific sensors and actuators, we are also building helper capabilities to make it easier to bring in new sensor and actuator drivers (e.g. an Arduino library, support for various communication protocols, helper classes for certain sensor types such as video cameras and weather sensors).

Recipe for building RPi GeoCam with OSH

Overview

We required a suite of inexpensive, geospatially-aware, video cameras that could run OpenSensorHub (OSH) onboard and store and/or stream in real time, video and navigation data (i.e. location and orientation). The OSH team thus developed the GeoCam based on Raspberry Pi (RPi) using the RPi HD video camera, an Adafruit GPS, and an Adafruit orientation sensor.
