Author: O. Michael Benavides
Project Title: A Web-Based Interface for the Control of Model Trains
Semester: Spring 2001
Committe Chair: Dr. R. Stephen Dannelly
Committee Member 1: Dr. Patrick Michaud
Committee Member 2: Dr. Holly Patterson-McNeill
Project Description: This project is the development of a control interface for the model railroad at the Computing and Mathematical Sciences' Real-Time Computing Laboratory at Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi. The client application developed for this project allows users to control speed, direction, and a path of multiple digital locomotives. The software functions via the Internet using a Perl/Common Gateway Interface(CGI) Client/Server scheme. The interface provides students the freedom of location to utilize the model train system in a round-robin fashion.
