The bsproxy can support 8 simultaneous clients, with each client having access to 8 proxied devices. Different clients can have access to the same proxied device. The bsproxy provides mutual exclusion mechanisms to ensure device and message correctness.
A proxied device is a target system resource, typcially a device driver controlling a specific hardware device, supported by bsprox. For example, a target system's I2C Bus and an RS-232 serial port are proxied devices. In addition, higher software level proxied devices are support. For example, the BrainPack Foot is proxied device with a specific set of operatations over an I2C Bus, while the RCB-3 Controller proxied device supports specific operations on an RS-232 over USB port.
Table 1 list the proxied devices that are or will be supported by the BotSense Proxy server by version 1.2.0.
