Energy monitoring solutions are becoming increasingly popular, thanks to smart homes and new affordable and easy to use devices.

But the remaining problem is how to help home residents to understand and easily perceive how much energy they are consuming, and how does it relate with their habits and actions.

The design of a in-home-display concept, based on Android, has been carried on with the wattsUP application, during the Master Thesis of Daniele Antoci.

 

The Dog Domotic OSGi Gateway is a long-lived project: the first publications date back to 2008, and in the same year the sourceforge project was created to distribute the source code.

All important projects, especially when they aim at delivering industrial-grade reliability, need constant care and controlled evolution: every couple of years a code review has been conducted, followed by deep refactoring and reengineering of the gateway code.

Recently, the architecture of Dog 2.3 has been analyzed in the context of the M.S. thesis of Luca Semprini, by comparing the core bundles to OSGi specifications and to design best practices. The result of the thesis is a comprehensive blueprint that will steer the transition from Dog 2.3 (the current version) to the new Dog 3.0 (expected in Spring 2013).
