Further work images

Friday, August 29th, 2008

We’re making additonal progress, both in terms of software and installation. Now the Corpora generator engine runs in an initial setup, but no real sensor data is processed as yet. Camera inputs are also working, as well as controlling our new camera using servo motors. Of course the old network cameras work as well. We can read data from the motes as well, they work quite reliably.
