[Development] New Module for Serial Buses

We’d like to create a new Qt module for serial buses. At first stage this generic extendable module would include support for CAN-bus, but architecture should be such that supporting also other generally used serial buses like Flexray, i2c, SPI, 1-wire etc. would be as easy as possible.

Motivation for this kind of generic bus module is to allow easy to use direct Qt access to buses that are commonly used when developing embedded and/or industrial applications with Qt. Also it would be great to see companies working with these buses to adopt the generalised core approach that we shall be bringing with this bus module and start developing support for different buses directly on top of Qt framework.

For naming we have thought either QtBus or QtSerialBus. IMO name as such should already on it’s own describe the generalised idea of the module.

Attached pdf describes the high level plan of the new module.

All comments and feedback is warmly welcome :)
