Proyecto Canafote just got the Open Source Software Price from Sevilla’s University in Spain. I can’t read Spanish, but [Mr Cuartielles] (from Arduino Blog) does:

Este proyecto se basa en la tecnología Arduino que es un proyecto de hardware libre. El objetivo de este proyecto, es el envío de una serie de datos obtenidos por sensores ya sea de temperatura, humedad,etc. por ethernet o por xbee, creando una red de sensores que a parte de obtener datos también los trata y reacciona ante ellos.

What means:

This project is based on Arduino technology, which is an open hardware project. This project’s goal is to send data coming from sensors, whether they messure temperature, moisture, etc over ethernet or Xbee creating a sensor network. This system, besides obtaining data, is able of reacting towards them.

Canafonte Network Architecture

The network needs a server that will collect al the data and eventually report the actuators in the network when they should make a move. The wireless part of the net needs an ethernet-Xbee gateway to connect. The server is written in Python and runs on linux, and creates a series of graphs coming from the different sensors on the fly.

Everything is under GPL3. The project owner, Alvaro Neira Ayuso, is publishing a blog to document the process of making the project. Unfortunately is in Spanish: help him translate the whole project.
