Several goals have been defined for the project.
- to describe and analyze architectures for high-performance, maintainable, and flexible embedded system.
- to define a set of prototype experiments that allow concrete performance measurements to be made.
- and, of course, also let the project be a forum for exchanging ideas and views as input to the concrete
Danfoss Drives is experimenting with implementation on top of the Kvasar CAN-Kingdom
Higher Layer Protocol to be able to compare with the distributed object framework.
Cotas is currently experimenting with DAO, a framework that provides a shared memory
metaphor (variable access as key abstraction) for building control software for windmills.
Based upon two EVM-CAN Evaluation Board from Europe Technologies we are building a lab
at CfPC for testing frameworks that allow distributed objects in embedded systems. At the lab, we can
download and experiment with different approaches to distributed objects specifically in a CAN-bus based
The distributed object framework is build both for the EVM-CAN board, for the Kvasar CAN simulator
system and for TCP/IP to ensure that the abstractions and underlying implementation can handle different
