LinuxDevices.com: Linux and Telematics: Building a Passenger Heatstroke Warning

(Other stories by David Beckemeyer)
"Our application uses the EarthLink SPARK kit as the basis for a heatstroke detection and warning system. We connect a motion sensor and a temperature sensor to the SPARK in-vehicle device inputs and produce a software application designed to monitor the sensors and take action if the vehicle becomes hot enough to put the occupants at risk.

Developing applications for the SPARK in-vehicle µClinux platform is similar to developing applications for desktop Linux systems. The kernel and libraries of the in-vehicle device are a subset of the typical full Linux system. The overall process is similar, using familiar tools like GNU make and the GNU compiler."
