SMI++ - State Manager Interface


SMI++ is a framework for designing and implementing distributed control systems. It is based on the original State Manager concept which was developed by the DELPHI experiment in collaboration with the DD/OC group of CERN. In this concept, a real-world system is described in terms of objects behaving as Finite State Machines. The credits for the original ideas and implementation go to M.Jonker, B.Franek, A.Vascotto and P. Vande Vyvre.
SMI++ objects can run in a variety of platforms all communications being handled transparently by an underlying communication system - DIM.
