For the 2010 edition, 9 projects have been selected and are divided into two categories:
- Projects, which aim to result in development advances with new functionalities at the end of the program, directly enriching Scilab Code or as an ATOMS module.
- Experimental projects which aims at giving the R&D team concrete clues and functional concepts of development on ambitious technical solutions.
Selected development projects
Extends Scilab UI Control
Extension of Scilab User Interface construction (uicontrol) by providing more elements (tree, image display, etc).
Simulink import in Xcos
Importation of most of the Simulink schemas from Xcos.
Cumulative distribution function improvements
Improvement and extension of the current cumulative distribution functions (CFD) into Scilab.
Metanet and Boost.graph
Extension of the Metanet capabilities in term of graphs by Boost.graph
Making available from Scilab both SOAP client and server capabilities as an ATOMS module.
Database module + fuzzySQL
Allow to access to most databases systems from Scilab. Based on this work, the FuzzySQL will be introduced, a SQL extension to allow flexible conditions in queries.
Introduction of a mechanism to load and use Python code (objects in particular) from Scilab.
Use Eigen into Scilab
Base some components of the Scilab core code on the Eigen library which is a state-of-the-art C++ linear algebra library. This work will be a joint mentoring between Gaël Guennebaud from the Eigen team and Scilab R&D team.
Hybrid Automata module
Provide a convenient environment for direct modeling of hybrid automata in Scilab/Xcos.
