With good metrics and queuing theory, it's possible to accurately compute your needs. Fulfilling the requirements, then becomes the tricky part.

C++11 language features are supported in the NDK, but they require a non-default configuration.

Qt 5.1 has a QSerialPort class that promised to make using the serial port easy on different platforms.

Both of my twin sons went to Home Away from Home full time starting in 2009 when they were 3 and weren't doing well in the kindergarten-like setting of their first daycare/school. My husband and I felt they were in need of more one-on-one adult attention and a little less focus on desk-based learning. I cannot begin to describe how they flourished at Home Away from Home. Miss Tanya runs what I would consider to be a cross between preschool and daycare. It is a very nurturing environment for young kids (babies up to 6 years old). They do plenty of educational activities such as craft projects, counting, abc's, learning colors and shapes, nursery rhymes and songs, weather and nature reports, spanish, etc. But they also do a lot of outdoor play (two beautiful play areas), holiday/theme "party" days, and get plenty of time to just be kids playing with each other, with constant supervision and gentle direction to keep them from getting into trouble. This place was the opposite of "institutional" and pretty much perfectly fits with my idea of what childcare should provide: A safe, loving, stimulating place where your children are treasured and taught social skills in a kind and compassionate way. My kids love Miss Tanya and Home Away from Home was a really great experience for our whole family.
