WEB-Based Control of Embedded Systems

Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookConference contributionpeer-review


Embedded Systems such as Network Attached Storage devices and DSL Routers can often be enhanced in order to perform additional autonomous computing tasks. This paper describes a method of interacting with and controlling such computations via an application running on a remote PC that serves as both the user interface and controller for applications running on networked embedded systems. Support for complex GUI standards such as X-Windows is not required, nor is a complicated Remote Procedure Call mechanism used. Instead, all interaction between the systems uses the HTTP protocol. Full-duplex and asynchronous interaction is made possible by running a web server not only on the target system, but also within the control application. The author has implemented the concepts discussed in this paper and a sample application called WEB32 will be demonstrated.
