 Introduction
   
I started CARACA for my house, but I received a lot of mails from people interested in home automation, so I decided to start the CARACA project to join all efforts into one direction.

I know there is already home automation projects, but they aren't as "open" as I would they be.

CARACA is yet in first development stage (alpha), but with the help of other interested programmers and people with CAN bus experience I hope to finish it soon.

Version 0.08 (alpha)

To build the project you need the IAR free assembler. I plan to port it to the AVA assembler.

To program the AT90S2313 you can use PonyProg.
