Applying computer/linux technology to InfraRed technology
Hi folks,

I have been searching for technical documents and discussion forums relating to applying programming on InfraRed technology for sometimes but without much result. Can any folk give me some suggestion.

I just found the following after a quick google search. Hope they help. Its not clear if you want to use IR like a household remote control (relatively easy) or use the IR technology in new laptops and handhelds. The IrDA link should help for the 2nd case, for remote control, try the third one.

Hi Dave,

Tks for your advice and response. Sorry for not being more specific on my first posting.

I have been searching a while before on IR technology
(FIR) Far Infra-Red
(SIR) Serial Infra-Red

What I found in the past are mainly for control and communication applications. My interest on IR technology started on browsing following site

infrared iR Thermal Imaging

Neither I have many information about the latest development of IR technology linked to computer technology. Therefore I started my first broad posting in anticipation collecting more information of IR application other than those 2 (control and communication) mentioned before.

I have been searching for discussion forums on infrared iR Thermal Imaging and documentation about its integration to computing technology but could not discover many of them especially the forum.

That is the whole story.
