In Fall of 2020, TimeSys and Sony proposed a "board farm REST API" for managing boards in a lab.

Here is some information about that project:

* git repository: https://github.com/TimesysGit/board-farm-rest-api
* mailing list: under construction (use automated-testing list, or direct author contact for now)

Status

In October, 2020, Harish Bansal of TimeSys and Tim Bird of Sony gave a presentation about the API at Embedded Linux Conference Europe, 2020.

At that time, the following had been accomplished and demonstrated:

* the API had been added to TimeSys' board farm server (https://bfc.timesys.com)
* a command line tool called 'ebf' had been developed
* support for ebf was added to the Fuego test framework
* a test was developed which used the API to executed a test in a lab-independent fashion
* the test had been executed on a board in the TimeSys board farm from a LAVA system and a Fuego system
