Physical Computing in Rust
- 65 Downloads
Up until now, all the programs you have written exist only in the virtual world. However, a big part of the physical world is controlled by software. Traffic lights, self-driving cars, airplanes, and even rockets and satellites are just a few examples. Much of this software has to be compiled and executed in a drastically different environment than the usual Linux, Windows, or MacOS desktop or laptop computers. They usually have to run on relatively weaker CPUs with less available memories. They might sometimes need to run without an operating system, or on specialized operating systems designed specifically for embedded systems.
