Welcome to the DistRap wiki. This wiki collects documentation and resources related to distributed control developments.


Goal of this project is to develop distributed control system for various robotics and industrial automation scenarios. We are currently targeting CAN and CANOpen fieldbus for interconnecting nodes. Node functions range from simple digital I/O, various sensors and motion controllers implementing specific CANOpen profiles. This allows building complex machinery with isolated parts performing specific functions.

This project also explores the possibilities of high assurance embedded software development by using Ivory Language - an eDSL for safe systems programming. You can think of Ivory as a safer C, embedded in Haskell.
