Timbot is a robot vehicle that we have built and are using as an experimental platform for Project Timber, a DARPA funded research project (part of the PCES program) in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the OGI School of Science and Engineering at OHSU.
Our goal is to show how Timber supports rapid construction and reuse of embedded, real-time applications with enhanced portability, guaranteed behavior for real-time components as a result of static analysis, and dynamic adaptivity for real-rate components driven by varying, user-specific QoS requirements.
In particular, the paper shows how Timber can be used to support an elegant, compositional approach to program construction and reuse -- from smaller control components to more complex, higher-level control applications -- without exposing programmers to the subtle and error-prone world of explicit concurrency, scheduling, and synchronization.
