AltonaLab is a graphical CAD environment, suitable for design of different kinds of digital and analog processes. It supports several working models:
Process modeling. The visualized results are not in real time. A long and complicated model can be calculated in seconds. The idea is to have the ability to model for a wide kind of real objects and to explore their behavior with different input signals. This working model is suitable for scientific research and for the equipment for universities.
Real time process control. In this case, the computer is connected via suitable hardware to a real object. The process time can be up to infinity. All the signals which are shown on computer screen are at real time.
Home automation. In this model, the controlled object is Home. It is easy to compose a diagram which to get decisions for switching on/off electrical devices according to a fixed time, fixed day of the week, fixed time only in workdays or holidays, at fixed temperature or any other value. (It is possible to use data from a local weather station and control the home regarding its values).
The system has TCP/IP Server which allows remote control through a mobile phone. The access is password protected. It is possible the values from the controlled processes to be visualized on the phone.
