Easy way to use the 1-wire sensors like temperature, voltage and more.
OWFS -- 1-Wire file system. Use the Dallas 1-Wire and iButton chips with standard filesystem commands. Create temperature loggers. Monitor everything. OWHTTPD -- same system, only used as a light weight web server. OWFS is also ported to embedded routers, Mac OSX and Windows. Basically you can use these inexpensive little sensors and other chips with very simple wiring to sense and control the physical environment. The interface is very flexible -- everything from a web browser, to read and writing directly to the chip's "file" to integrating with your programs -- even over the internet. There is a growing number of 1-wire sensors: temperature, voltage, humidity, light, ultraviolet, pressure, thermisters, thermocouples, programmable microcontrollers, relays, lights, LCD panels, etc.
PyUSB provides USB access on the Python language.
CPU-G is an application that shows useful information about your hardware. It collects and displays information about your CPU, RAM, Motherboard, some general information about your system and more.
i-nex system hardware lister
I-Nex is an application that gathers information for hardware components available on your system and displays it using an user interface similar to the popular Windows tool CPU-Z.
The Open IPMI project aims to develop an open code base to allow access to platform information using Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI).
Button Masher is a simple utility to help you analyse and improve your execution of fighting game moves, combos, etc. It's similar to the joystick input display in some games' practice modes.
Linux GPIB Driver package (source)
The Linux GPIB Package is a support package for GPIB (IEEE 488.2) hardware. The package contains a development environment consisting of a GPIB library written in C, kernel driver modules, and bindings for several other languages.
The Virtual USB Analyzer is a graphical tool for browsing traces of captured USB data. It supports logs generated by Ellisys hardware analyzers and VMware's software analyzer, and Linux's usbmon.
A project for a highly scalable protocol and framework and a collection of software tools for m2m (machine to machine communication) and IoT Internet of Things. The programs here works on Windows and Linux and are based around VSCP, The Very Simple Control Protocol. Repository is here: https://github.com/grodansparadis/vscp_software and here https://github.com/grodansparadis/vscp_firmware
Open HPI is an open source implementation of the SA Forum's Hardware Platform Interface (HPI). HPI provides an abstracted interface to managing computer hardware, typically for chassis and rack based servers.

GUI interfaces for Acer Hardware driver -- acerhk.ko
This project site maintains several projects that support the acerhk.ko linux module and provide a GUI interface for the module to activate and deactivate the wireless and bluetooth radios. Please see this projects Wiki for more information: https://sourceforge.net/p/acerhkgui/wiki/Home/ Programs: AcerHK GUI -- Main program. Updated 2015-03-05. Version 0.7.2.5 should work. Please report errors, as it may still require some work. Cinnamon Desktop Applet -- simple system tray icon to provide radio on and off controls. It is also available at: http://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/applets/view/219 Ubuntu AppIndicator Applet -- currently in development. Stay posted for this. Build Script for acerhk.ko. Use the 11.04+. Includes source code. Please see this projects Wiki for more information.
Library and command line program providing access to the EEPROM of an Silabs CP2101 / CP2102 / CP2103. It can programm the USB-Descriptors and the Baudrate table.
A Linux program/library for interfacing the Velleman k8055 USB I/O board
Python GUI program to work with Geiger counters like GMC-300/320/500
GeigerLog is a Python based GUI program to work with GQ Electronic's GMC-300 / 320 and now also GMC-500 Geiger counters. Available as "scripts" to run where a proper Python environment exists, or as "bundle", which brings its own Python environment (but currently runs on Linux only). GeigerLog allows reading of Geiger counter data, logging to file, printing to screen and plotting as graph, showing Count Rate vs. Time, both in various, selectable units. The history stored on the Geiger counter's internal memory can be extracted, analyzed and graphed in the same way. The graph is live auto-updated and allows various customization. Time ranges for analysis can be set manually or per left/right mouse click. GeigerLog can control some functions of a connected counter (limited to GMC-3xx counters!). Advanced analysis of the data now permits count rate histograms with Poisson fit for quality control of data, and FFT analysis for any periodic signal hidden within the data.
Infineon e-bike controller setup tool
XPD (stands for "eXtended Parameter Designer") is an alternative to "KeyWin e-Bike Lab Parameter Designer" software used to program the so-called "Infineon" e-bike controllers. * It provides some additional features missing in the original program, and is generally easier to use. * It is opensource so you can learn how it works and add unique features to it or customize to suit your own needs. * It is cross-platform: works on Linux, Windows and Android.
LBRC enables a J2ME and bluetooth equipped device to control a linux computer
Monitors CPU Temperature from command line in Fahrenheit and Celsius and gives results of highest and lowest temperatures, and average over period of time run, then logs the data. Requires ACPI.
LinuxCNC controls CNC machines. It can drive milling machines, lathes, 3d printers, laser cutters, plasma cutters, robot arms, hexapods, and more.
This project is a POSIX-compliant driver for the dgt board from dgtprojects. It is intented at acting as a layer between chess engines and the dgt board.
Python driver for the LaCrosse WS-2300
Ws2300 manipulates the LaCrosse WS-2300 weather station via its RS232/USB interface. It can read and write values, and can continuously log data from WS-2300 to a file or SQL database. All available documentation can be read online at http://ws2300.sourceforge.net/
Gizmod is a utility for enabling alternative input devices to be used in Linux. This includes such devices as the PowerMate USB dial, fancy keyboards and mice with buttons not recognized or supported by X. Gizmod allows per application event mappings.
Control your Linux PC with a standard foot pedal
This python utility allows users on Linux to control their PC using a foot pedal. The foot pedal becomes an extra mouse or mini keyboard but footcontroller allows you to define multiple pedal sets which you can activate at the click of a button. It uses xdotool to provide you with the ability to assign commands to each pedal. Many foot pedals come with software, often MS Windows only, which allows you to program the pedals to perform some function or other, Footcontroller does away with the proprietary software and allows you to define multiple sets of commands that can be swapped in or out at the click of a button. The advantage is that now, your foot pedal can perform different tasks in multiple situations simply by selecting the appropriate pedal set, rather than having to re-program the foot pedal from scratch.
