Paper Abstract

This paper describes the design of a control system for a flexible automation system, AutoLab, for sample preparation and analysis in a chemistry laboratory without human assistance. The design has used the blackboard architecture for control which has to deal with problems of concurrency, deadlock and crash recovery while maintaining the real-time operation of AutoLab. Issues of the composition of blackboard area, coordination between communicating modules, robot operation are dealt with in the paper.
