Title: SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR ICONIC GRAPHICAL USER INTERFACE AND EMBEDDED DEVICE MANAGER
Abstract:
Systems and methods are provided that manage embedded devices and that interface with networks. In some embodiments, a system comprising a graphical user interface with common abstractions for the settings of an embedded device is presented to a user. In some embodiments, the abstractions are displayed to the user as intuitive icons. In some embodiments, these icons use pictures, colors, and/or other graphical and animation techniques to illustrate device management functions to a user. The user is able to easily determine how he/she wants the embedded device configured, and can quickly configure the device without having to be familiar with underlying device settings. The user can also manage the device by changing settings. The GUI acts as a "skin" over an existing legacy user interface of the embedded device, permitting the system to be easily implemented on top of essentially any embedded device with a web server.
