An Information Kiosk, a remote sensor data terminal, an e-learning booth! The versatile reconfigurable device which can be used in multiple scenarios. The InfoCanvas dons a 400Mhz mini2440 ARM SBC with a 12.1 inch touchscreen and a keyboard for user interaction. The Qt based device harnesses the power of Qt to handle the display and UI by use of WebKit module and runs a rock solid customized Linux kernel to handle the hardware resources.
Design and Development
The system design and development involved the proper selection of hardware, software implementation and thenbenchmarking the system’s performance.
Code & Documentation
I do not think that I could document this project well had it not been a part of my Masters Curriculum. I admit I’m too lazy for that. But being a part of my coursework, documentation came as a angel in disguise🙂 I have documented the design and development and even put up boot scripts etc in my MTech Thesis which is released under public domain [now removed because of reports of academic abuse]. The thesis has been written in latex and the source for that can be requested on demand. The startup scripts (non-trivial ones) will be put up as a git repo soon.
