Re: message passing interface with diffrent kinds of compute

Instead of focusing on the communication subproblem , present you general idea (home automation) and ask for input , ( we have an automation subforum ) so more people will participate and give feedback. ghans OK I am sorry for being off topic as this is not the right place I will do as you suggest,...

Re: message passing interface with diffrent kinds of compute

@steve-tmq I gues your approach is fundamentally different to OPs , and deserves a new thread. I would says what you describe is not a typical distributed computing problem , but more like a system of several components with different tasks that needs a communcication protocol. ghans Yes the proble...

Re: Using RPI as a controller

If you mean by addressing the GPIO pins as I-O ports, then not many. Now if you use the I2C bus which is part of the GPIO, then the maximum number of i-o ports runs up into the 2000+ range. For simple on/off, open/closed operation I don't agree there are the 17 GPIO pins are not buffered so you nee...

Re: message passing interface with diffrent kinds of compute

My idear for the use of message passing may mean/need a diffent form of message use and may be some one could point me in the right direction. Lets say: I have one RPI controling my hose eletrics doing things like turning on and off lights/heaters ect.. depending on things like time of day, tempture...

Re: message passing interface with diffrent kinds of compute

I have a question about message passing but I would like to address this point first: I am surprised than a well-respected academic institution like Southampton University has been producing "teasing" articles abut their "Supercomputer"(??) without acknowledging than a handful of Intel CPUs would ea...
