Distributed Computation in Autonomous Robotic Systems

Modern robotic systems are becoming more and more complex either in mechanical, electronical or software domain. The electronical and software complexity hereby comes from the shift away from a centralized control system to multiple, distributed and heterogeneous processing units and their interconnection. How this heterogeneity of hardware – including reconfigurable hardware – can be transformed to homogeneity in programmability is one of the central questions in this project.
