Sedona Framework Developers meet at Niagara Summit 2016
May 2016 - A group of Sedona Framework
developers held their second organizational meeting during Niagara
Summit 2016. Companies in attendance for the second meeting
included Ontrol, EasyIO, GC5, SysMik/Phoenix Contact, BASSG, Solidyne
and Contemporary Controls representing companies that produce Sedona
devices or Sedona software. These companies are interested in
making Sedona an open control language while encouraging the sharing of
hardware independent custom designed Sedona components with the Sedona
community. The inaugural meeting of this same group was held during
Light+Building show this past March.
Of immediate importance was to determine Tridium’s position in supporting Sedona in Niagara 4. Although Sedona Framework was developed by Tridium several years ago under an academic free license, Sedona tool and driver support only exists in Niagara 3.7 and 3.8, other vendors have produced their own Sedona tools. Tridium arranged for a meeting room for the Sedona developers and attended part of the meeting responding to the group’s questions. As a Sedona tool, Niagara 4 Workbench will not support Sedona device programming. However, in terms of a Sedona driver in Niagara 4, Tridium will assist the Sedona developers if they intend to develop such a driver. For smaller IoT devices, Tridium is interested in developing Edge technology to their existing Niagara 4 architecture and welcomes the Sedona developers to become active in the process.
The meeting concluded with resolutions to create a legal non-profit organization and open up membership to all those in the Sedona Community – developers and integrators. A website would be created for this new organization and a Google Group has been established. If you would like to be invited into the Google Group, contact Bennet Levine at email@example.com.
