Senior Project - IDEA


A Generalized Driver Framework for Building Automation Systems

Senior Project: 1995-1996
Sebastian Kuzminsky, Tze Lau, Tony Valey and Rufus (Bindu) Wavell
Golden, CO

IEC develops systems to control and monitor building environments. The current building controls environment includes building automation systems from several different vendors all operating an individual facility. These different systems do not interact with each other because each vendor has its own proprietary protocol. IEC has developed a product line, called INTELLECT, which allows these different controls systems to operate as one large system. This is done by creating a parallel processing environment which takes control of the different systems. In addition, a parallel processing capability is provided on an ISA board, providing direct access to individual systems as long as the driver for the interface is available. In this project, a generic framework was developed in C and assembler to support the rapid construction of drivers. A graphical user interface, as well as example drivers, were provided for testing the system.
