    Telemetry data and Linux, looking for ideas


    Hello, I am not sure if this forum is the correct one to ask this question, but I hope somebody can help.
    The idea that I am working now seems to be simple, I would like to have multiple sensorts - 3 temperature sensors, barometric pressure sensor, accelerometer, humidity, GPS position sensor. Data from these sensor should be collected and stored. The question: which would be the best way to connect all sensors, CAN - bus?? One wire?? . All these will be on boat, so some of these data will be "stolen" from NMEA 0168 network. I did something like this using Paralax Propeller and each microcontroler was collecting data from each sensor, data were recorded on SD card plus transmitted via XBee network, now I want to do similar project but with wired connection plus linux (beagleBoard running Uuntu) and looking for best way to do it.
    Thanks in advance and I do understan that I am a little off topic but we linux users are open minded fox so I expect somebody will have some suggestion.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    What hardware interfaces are available to the sensor hardware?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
