This page contains the Roadmap for the future changes of the Chordata framework
Chordata is entering the beta-stage. Together with a limited number of users we will be working with the prototypical version of the suit, in order to create the first production version of the framework. The priority is to implement or fix the features that will allow them to use the system in the smoother possible way.
SBC as an access point
- Currently the SBC is only capable of connecting to an external network.
- This feature was implemented by Antonio Ianiero some months ago, just requires some cleanup.
Fix the Notochord control server
- When a Chordata’s SBC finishes booting, launches a service that provides an HTTP and Websocket interface through which a user can perform the common operations that a capture requires. We call it the :Notochord control server see How_it_works §2.3.1 .
- It is the backbone for all Utility_software. For example it allow the notochord to be initialized from the Blender_add-on or the Remote console
- This feature is already implemented but requires some fixes: We should change the way the
notochord_runner.pymodule interacts with the Notochord (from stdout parsing to OSC messages)
Buttons on the Remote console
- The remote console allows users to control the Notochord from a browser, without having to access the SBC through ssh.
- Currently exposes only a cli interface. It would be great to also have buttons for the most common operations, like [INIT] or [CALIBRATE]
Blender add-on improvements
- Implement an overall heading offset for the in-pose calibration. See §III on this paper by Lee Morton et al
- general cleanup
- complete & update testing suite
- Implement a better parsing order mechanism (currently the XML parsing might overwrite some CLI args)
- GPIO ENABLE
- Flush loggers on every timer cycle
- Date formatting without trailing \n
- Turn sensors off on close
- "Scan" feature (make the notochord tell the user which K-Ceptor it can find) [DONE #0ad502e0]
- Use higher sensor refresh rates (experimental)
- Fix bug with acelerometer and gyroscope calibration*
- Validate acel and gyro calibration
- Improve calibration CLI UX
- Add higher Sensor data rate
