It has been quiet here over the last few months. Of course, it was summer so everybody slowed down a bit. Another reason, however, is also that we have been busy ramping up the first real-world commercial project with mbeddr. The project is a Smart Meter system developed by itemis france.
A smart meter is an electrical meter that continuously records the consumption of electrical power and sends the data back to the utility provider for monitoring and billing. The software comprises ca. 30.000 lines of mbeddr code. Several of the mbeddr default extensions are used, and additional, project-specific extensions have been developed. Three developers are involved in the project at this time, including people from the core mbeddr team as well as outsiders.
Stay tuned for a more detailed case study in the near future.
