AutomataKit is a collection of open hardware and software developed to as a rapidly reconfigurable library for various machine-building, process development, and robotics projects.
Typically, designing and engineering complex systems requires knowledge across the disciplines of electrical engineering, embedded programming, mechanical design, controls engineering, and interface design. By breaking these components into reconfigurable [software and hardware objects](!/nadya-phd), AutomataKit aims to allow non-experts (and experts) to jump in to higher-level systems design.
It uses a Distributed Dataflow Programming paradigm: hardware and software objects are all nodes in a graph, executing computing and physical tasks.
!DOC - threeset: hardware objects, network topology, software
[ATKAPI]( serves a development environment for those graphs.
