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.

For other types of features see the the "Discussion" page for this article or this, or this thread on the forum

(future..) 0.1.3b Fourth beta release[edit]

SBC as an access point[edit]

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[edit]

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 module interacts with the Notochord (from stdout parsing to OSC messages)

Buttons on the Remote console[edit]

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[edit]

Notochord tweaks[edit]

  • general cleanup
  • complete & update testing suite
  • Implement a better parsing order mechanism (currently the XML parsing might overwrite some CLI args)
  • Flush loggers on every timer cycle
  • Date formatting without trailing \n
  • Turn sensors off on close

0.1.2b Third beta release[edit]

Notochord compatibility improved[edit]

  • Compatible with Raspbian Buster and Raspberry pi 4
  • Compatible with Chordata Blender client v1.0.0

Notochord bug fixing[edit]

  • Fix path relative to $(pwd) in command line option

(2019/05/20) 0.1.1b Second beta release[edit]

  • "Scan" feature (make the notochord tell the user which K-Ceptor it can find) [DONE #0ad502e0]
  • Use higher sensor refresh rates (experimental) [DONE #6d6a62b4]
  • Fix bug with acelerometer and gyroscope calibration*
  • Validate acel and gyro calibration
  • Improve calibration CLI UX

- Add higher Sensor data rate

(2019/02/04) 0.1.0b First beta release[edit]
