WoTUG - The place for concurrent processes

Paper Details

occam on the Arduino

Authors: Sampson, Adam T., Jadud, Matthew C., Jacobsen, Christian L.


The Arduino is an open-source "physical computing" development system with a large, active user community. Arduino applications are usually developed in a subset of C++ with no concurrency facilities, which makes it difficult to build systems that must respond to a variety of external stimuli. We present an implementation of occam for the Arduino based on the Transterpreter portable runtime, adapted to make efficient use of the small Harvard-architecture microcontrollers typically used on devices like the Arduino. In addition, we describe the library of processes -- "Plumbing" -- that we provide to ease the development of physical computing applications.
