pygps is a GPS user interface. It shows a listing of satellites, their locations in the sky, a list of latitude, longitude, altitude, status, etc., and moving maps. It was designed to work on the Compaq (now HP) iPAQ PDA running Linux, with a 240x320 screen. However, it uses glade, so that it also works nicely on larger screens, or on a landscape orientation of 320x240. It works with any GPS receiver supported by gpsd (which see).
Xgravity is a program for the simulation of 3D gravitational motion of n-bodies. It reads a file with the current state of the bodies, and displays the motion. It features a nice isometric perspective, Red-Green stereographics, and a stereographic perspective which allows you to see the trace in "real" 3D. There is a GTK GUI interface in development, which gives you the ability to perform basic operations with the system, like modifing objects, rotating, eliminating drift, and launching a simulation.
PEXESO Evolutionary Methods Library is the library of Evolutionary Optimization Methods for Real Domains. It is based on the original Object Oriented Algorithmic model that consists of the multi- operators technology (currently it supports 13 operator types) and "open policy" on the selection strategy (currently 4 selection strategy types). Using this method you have a possibility to compose your own optimization method using some combination of operators and selection strategies, or you can use one of 3 precomposed algorithms. It is provided with several examples and comprehensive HTML documentation.
COSMIX is a general purpose N body integrator. It allows simulation of the behavior of gravitational systems according to different physical theories. The current release is only a test release - it only supports the newtonian approximation. The project aims at tackling relativity in coming releases.
DREAM (The Distributed Resource Evolutionary Algorithm Machine) seeks to provide the technology and software infrastructure necessary to support the next generation of evolving infohabitants in a way that makes that infrastructure universal, open, and scalable. It will use existing hardware infrastructure in a much more efficient manner, by utilising otherwise-unused CPU time. It will allow infohabitants to co-operate, communicate, negotiate and trade; and emergent behaviour is expected to result. It is expected that there will be an emergent economy that results from the provision and use of CPU cycles by infohabitants and their owners. The DREAM infrastructure will be evaluated with new work on distributed data mining, distributed scheduling, and the modelling of economic and social behaviour.
The Linux Driver and API for Datel PC-462 project aims to produce a Linux driver and API for the Datel PC-462 Data Acquisition Card/Power Supply. From correspondence with Datel, there is no other Linux driver/API for this board. This software will allow developers and engineers to write test software that runs on Linux and incorporates the Datel hardware.
