Graphical User Interface – the FUNcube Dashboard
The Graphical User Interface (GUI) is the software which will be available to anyone interested (including schools and individuals) which will run on a Windows computer, and allow the user to do things like display the telemetry. It will take data from the FUNcube dongle while it is receiving live signals from the satellite and, if so configured, relay any received telemetry to the Data Warehouse via the Internet. In this way we can build up a store of telemetry from all over the world, hopefully!
We have already developed and enginnering version of the FUNcube Dashboard but what is required now is to create some versions suitable for childrens of different age groups. We will be making the core software generally available under a Creative Commons licence before launch so potential collaborators are encouraged to contact us for more information
Full details of the proposed specification are below (much is yet to be decided, and your comments are welcome). Please note that it is in DRAFT form at present, and subject to change.
