The LMMS Project

This is a project I am now working on with The University of Southern California (L.A.)'s Industrial and Systems Engineering Department in my spare time.

We hope to bring the internet to the plant floor with this technology. We are moving the controllers that control equipment/tools on the plant floor to a remote location so that the same remote server can be used to control the operations of different machines all across the Internet/Intranet.

The project is completely Java based and it involves a lot of EJB, Jini and Java Serial Communication APIs. We have EJB services that service remote clients on the network. We are trying to wrap these EJBs as Jini services, so as to create Jini service federations that can be dynamically looked-up and used by any client on the network.

If you are really interested in learning more about this project, please send in a note to me or to Prof.Dr.Satish Bukkapatnam of USC.
