NBTouch: NetBurner at your fingertips

Embedded systems are notoriously difficult to work with for beginners (even with NetBurner’s simple and easy-to-use tools, non-engineers sometimes find it intimidating). Also, it is hard to develop good-looking and friendly user interface(UI) for an embedded device. This project will shows you how to develop a easy to use touch screen device to display web interface on a NetBurner device. This project will allow the integration of all kinds of friendly UI as it is only a web application. For ease of use, I focused on having it set up and run with no required user input.

To make such a product, the goal for the project was to meet the following expectations:

  • Touchscreen
  • Virtual keyboard
  • Minimal window manager / no desktop
  • Automatically find local NetBurner devices
  • Display the devices’ GUI

In this article, I will show you a quick demo and step-by-step how-to guide to make your application efficient, convenient, and simple by displaying your UI on a touchscreen kiosk that meets my listed expectations.

In modern times, everyone carries a powerful computer in their pocket. Smart phone technology gives your eyes and fingers an easy way to manipulate data. This intuitive interface is not restricted to your smart phone. Touch screen displays are also available for your own embedded creations. A touchscreen and display allows the device to be controlled and used without a PC interface.
