Presentation: The Actor Model applied to the Raspberry Pi & the Embedded Domain

Track: Languages / Time: Thursday 11:30 - 12:20 / Location: Century B

The Actor Model has interesting properties that could be used for dealing with complexities posed by modern embedded systems. Using actors as compositional units to describe these systems is a new proposal which stands out and challenges conventional approaches.

This talk will demonstrate how, creating a layered architecture for hardware modules and partitioning up complex systems in smaller units, testing becomes much easier, runtime errors are contained, and the architecture becomes maintainable.
