Software design

Participants : Olivier Bernard, Florian Guenn, Mélaine Gautier.

Over the years, BIOCORE has been developing a software framework for bioprocess control and supervision called ODIN [63] . This C++ application (working under Windows and Linux) enables researchers and industrials to easily develop and deploy advanced control algorithms through the use of a Scilab interpreter. It also contains a Scilab-based process simulator which can be harnessed for experimentation and training purposes. ODIN is primarily developed in the C++ programming language and uses CORBA to define component interfaces and provide component isolation. ODIN is a distributed platform, enabling remote monitoring of the controlled processes as well as remote data acquisition. Recently, a software development effort has been directed to the graphical user interface, a synoptic view component, new drivers for the experimental hardware and integration of the PlantML data exchange format. ODIN has been tested on four different processes and currently supervises the 66m 2 high rate pond at the LBE, INRA Narbonne.
