        *Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
        * NUT 2.6.5
        * From Ubuntu terminal ---> sudo apt-get install nut
        * Openups from mini-box.com 
        * - Intelligent UPS, USB interface
    - SMBUS slave and I2C master
    - Input 6-34V
    - Programable output 6-24V
    - Default output is 12V
    - Input/Output current 6A/10A peak
    - Charge between 6-30V, 3A
    - Voltage and current limits
    - Li-Ion, Li-Po, LIFEPO4, Lead Acid
    - 1, 2S, 3S, 4S, 5S, 6S
    - Balancing up to 6S
    - Coulomb counting (fuel gauge)
    - Motherboard ON/OFF pulse control*
    - OS detects device “Battery”
    - manufactured by mini-box.com
    - ROHS compliant

    My team would like to integrate the ups variables with ROS, http://www.ros.org
    We are using openups connected to a battery that will power up out robot. Openups will provide the vital information regarding the battery. The programming language used in the development of our robot is ROS. In times of low battery, we would like to have NUT sending a message from the single board computer, in the robot, via ethernet to another computer, which is connected to the ethernet.
    Following the user manual provided, I understand that upssched will help to invoke commands at some interval relative to a ups event and it can also mail out notices about things.
    I am still unclear on how to go about doing this.
    Any help is appreciated.
    Thank you very much.
