This page is intended as placeholder for preparing the Domoverse platform project.

It is a project whose aim is to explore the HMI capabilities of Metaverse-related technologies (OpenSim/OpenLife/OpenCroquet/Solipsis) in a domotics context (X10/Z-Wave, Gumstix, ZigBee...), as home server control and root web house.

Project organization

  1. State of the art: metaverse platforms and domotics management systems
  2. Evaluation of metaverse and domotics management systems candidates
  3. Implementation of a tmplab server for experimentation
  4. 3D Replication of the lab and it's electronic devices
  5. Implementation of XMLRPC-like server for services exposition (X10, ...)
  6. Linking virtual objects' actions to XMLRPC calls
  7. Gluing all together


  • XMLRPC server:
    • keeps a list of all detected devices and features
    • exposes their functionality trough the remote procedure call interface
    • hosts a 3D modelization of controlled items
  • device_connectors: protocol-specific plugins
    • X10 devices exploitation
    • ZigBee
    • Z-Wave
  • metaverse_connectors: metaverse-specific components (speaks with metaverse server)
  • metaverse objects and scripting codebases and snippets, domoverse-related templates and coding resources
