Hard Real-time Python, or, Giant Robots of Doom
Presented by Simon Wittber (Different Methods Pty Ltd)
Can you use Python to control a pair of 30 tonne robots as they spin at 72 kilometres per hour? Can you use Python to provide realtime collision avoidance and fly-by-wire control?
Yes, you can. See how Perth based engineering company Transmin Pty Ltd (www.transmin.com.au) used Python to deliver a safety-crticial robotic control system in record time.
