—Development of a Low Cost Industrial
Automation and Control System Framework based on Service-
Oriented Architecture (SOA) using OSGi Framework for
rapid application deployment has been attempted here.
Objective is to develop a user-friendly, Platform and Hardware
Independent Industrial Automation System using Free and
Open Source Software (FOSS) and Completely-off –the-shelf
(COTS) Hardware. The developed application prototype
successfully integrates a service enabled SCADA system and its
real time data acquisition and control of various industrial
applications using Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol
(XMPP). The prototype also provides information through a
user friendly Graphical User Interface (GUI) for process
visualization and remote controllability. An Alarm Event
Handling Service with integrated Short Message Service (SMS)
and Remote Service Invocation abilities are the salient features
of the developed system. Implementation using popular
industry standard SCADA software (IGSS) proves that the
work is scalable as required by real-world applications.
