Abstract

It is currently extremely challenging to bridge the gap between the hardware configuration of sensor-based systems and algorithm implementation. When an algorithm on live sensor data needs to be tried out, preferably in an embedded state, a first barrier to cross would be to get access to the sensor data in a programming environment that would offer sufficient resources for the algorithms. This poster proposes a minimalist description language of how to acquire sensor data from a wide variety of interface protocols, and briefly illustrates how it has been implemented and used in our current research thus far.
