PJON® (Padded Jittering Operative Network) is an experimental, arduino-compatible, multi-master, multi-media network protocol. It proposes a new Open Standard, it is designed as a framework and implements a totally software-defined network protocol stack that can be easily cross-compiled on many microcontrollers and real-time operative systems like ATtiny, ATmega, SAMD, ESP8266, ESP32, STM32, Teensy, Raspberry Pi, Zephyr, Linux, Windows x86, Apple and Android. PJON operates on a wide range of media, data links and existing protocols like PJDL, PJDLR, PJDLS, Serial, RS485, USB, ASK/FSK, LoRa, UDP, TCP, MQTT and ESPNOW. For more information visit the documentation, the specification or the wiki.
Researchers are active in many universities worldwide using PJON in different environments. The following list contains all the known published academic studies about PJON:

When testing PJON, extreme care must be taken to avoid any danger. Consider that the implementation is experimental and may not behave as expected, use it at your own risk. When devices are connected to AC power you are exposed to a high chance of being electrocuted if hardware is not installed carefully and properly. If you are not experienced enough ask the support of a skilled technician and consider that many countries prohibit uncertified installations. When testing a SoftwareBitBang bus interference mitigation and protective circuitry guidelines must be followed. When experimenting with AnalogSampling setup safety glasses must be worn and transceivers must be operated cautiously to avoid potential eye injuries. Before testing OverSampling, ThroughSerial or ThroughLoRa radio communication, be sure the frequency, power and hardware used complies with local laws. When connecting a local bus to the internet all devices must be considered potentially compromised, manipulated or remotely actuated against your will. It should be considered a good practice not to connect to the internet systems that may create a damage (fire, flood, data-leak) if hacked.
