Dockserver-talk is a python module that provides an easy way to build custom clients that communicate with Teledyne Webb Research's dockserver software, used to control "Slocum" underwater gliders.
The package comes with two applications built on top of dockserverTalk:
BUGS: a program to monitor and display the position of gliders (as well as buoys and ships) with respect to a given GPS location (from an external source).
Surfalarm: a program that can send text messages or make direct phone calls, acting upon a glider to surface and connect to a dockserver, being in a mission, or aborted.
Serial2rudics: a helper program that lets a glider simulator connected to a serial port appear as a glider connecting and disconnection via rudics/iridium when at ther surface or underwater, respectively.
