Paper Abstract

New experimental hardware for research into architectures for distributed intelligent embedded systems is proposed that will provide a wide range of communication media including non- deterministic broadcast such as Ethernet, deterministic broadcast such as CAN and processor busses such as VME. The emphasis is on large scale system integration rather than provision for individual capabilities. A prototype implementation of some of the proposed hardware and software modules is described together with their use in several research projects.
