Our research at the Neubrandenburg University of Applied Sciences aims to discover new ways of ensuring the stability and structural integrity of buildings, terrain, and other observed objects by using advanced technologies in sensors, software programming, hardware development, and network engineering in modern automatic deformation monitoring.
The free and open-source software OpenADMS is a modern multi-platform monitoring system for automated observations in engineering geodesy. OpenADMS can be used to implement geodetical and geotechnical sensor networks within the Internet of Things.
Our monitoring software is compatible to all modern computer architectures and a broad range of operating systems.
You can run the software also on ARM-based single board computers with Unix or GNU/Linux.
All componentes of the project are open source and published under the European Union Public Licence.
The software can be used for private and commercial purposes, free of charge. You have the right to modify and distribute it.
The monitoring system supports many geodetical, geotechnical, and meteorological sensors. Additional sensors can be added without programming, simply by modifying the configuration.
The OpenADMS consists of distinct modules for sensor control, observation data processing, and persistance. Extended functionality can be added through supplementary software modules written in Python.
The native Application Programming Interface (API) enables network-based remote control and data exchange with third-party software. OpenADMS uses the MQTT message protocol for internal and external communication.
