BUSnet is an open-source, robust low-speed redundant-ring topology serial network originally designed to monitor and control devices in an RV (bus, motorhome, campervan, caravan, 4x4, boat) but now also targetted at commercial and light industrial environments such as home control, automation, hydroponics, aquariums, workshops, solar installations etc.


Current state

BUSnet has changed a lot in the last few weeks, a new spec is being written and this will be available soon.

Meanwhile these web pages are pretty much up to date.

Non-techo description

Note, this section of robgray.com is quite technical, it is designed to be read by potential BUSnet developers, not the average non-computing/electronics person.

For a layman's view of the system see here. What's it going to actually do for the average person?


I must emphasise that at this point BUSnet is all hat and no cattle. Some prototyping has been done but for the last 18 months I've been writing (and changing) the spec and designing things on paper. This may continue for another six months, or as long as it takes to get what I consider to be a stable specification.

Much as I'd love to start tinkering right away I can't really afford to so for the time being spec writing is what I'll do.

I could really use some help with this as well, at present this entails reading what I've done and applying a sanity test to it.

If you're at all interested go to this page.
