Pittsburg, CA, August 06, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- As the open source movement continues, the developers at SMART Turbine are getting in on it with their monitoring and control board.
While the developers at SMART Turbine Inc. feel quality control for the main device needs to be maintained as a closed box system in early years, there is a portion of the machine that lends itself to an open hardware mindset. The monitoring and control system is being approached as an open source project on Kickstarter.com.
The developers hope that offering this particular piece of the SMART Turbine as open source will create added value. Brad Hunter says, "We see this as an opportunity to add value as well as expand the possibilities for a diverse and distributed power infrastructure run for the people and by the people who own them. Allowing the monitor and control system to network will hopefully expand on this notion greatly."
