Quite interesting initiative.

Both Arduino, RaspberryPi (or other boards) look like interesting approaches.
Also, has anyone thought about OPC protocol to communicate with PLCs, so much used in many industries?
I see there is this project: (there other projects, but or are not very mature or rely on propietary third-party libraries).
It would be nice to add a Python layer of some sort and relate it to some odoo module.
This is something haunting my mind, but I have no time or resources to go deep in it till at least next year.

Just my 2 cents.

I am appreciating the idea. I can also suggest the Raspberry pi as a development hardware. because we can program it in Python!

Dear Chris,

Thank you very much to bring this subject to the community. Personally, I am very interested of what you are doing. I am working currently on the SCADA System for a Water Treatment Plant project.. It would be great if we can have the integration of all SCADA equipments ( Sensors, Actuators, Motors, etc.)  into an ERP like ODOO.
I saw that It is already done with the big guy like SAP..

I'm working with a couple of nutritional supplement manufacturers that want to be able to monitor environmental conditions like temperature, humidity and dust levels. Separately they also want to have a fingerprint scanner that employees will use to clock in and out for attendance. 

I've taken an Arduino Yun, connected a temperature/humidity sensor to it and have that data feeding real-time into a table in OpenERP via XML-RPC. The next part is to setup the fingerprint scanner to connect to the attendance feature in the HR module.

I'm curious if there's interest for a larger community project to generically connect an Arduino to Odoo/OpenERP. Maybe a configuration screen where we can make the associations between pins on the Arduino and fields in ERP. 

There's an endless amount of scanners, sensors, motors, cameras, etc. Modules could alert in ERP when data from sensors moves outside of specified thresholds.
