Set-up a machine for real-time remote control using RTAI, Scicoslab and RTAI-XML

This tutorial is focused on providing you all the information needed to quickly build a working control machine for real-time signal acquisition and processing.
It’s completely based on open-source software, all included in the archive provided.
Most of the procedures described in the first half of this article come from the work of Roberto Bucher (University of Applied Sciences of Southern Switzerland), Simone Mannori (INRIA, Rocquencourt) and Thomas Netter (University of Zurich), while for part that covers the remote control credit goes to the work of Marco Romagnoli, Michele Basso (Università degli Studi di Firenze) and Massimo Vassalli (Istituto di Biofisica, CNR, Genova).
I edited the package sources to ensure compatibility with each other’s version and the operating system suggested, and to possibly avoid compiling errors and malfunctions while following the steps of this tutorial in the exact order. Considering this, I advise you to get all software from the realtimesuite archive instead of their official versions available on the web.
