Undergraduate Ada Projects - Gliding in Space
The Australian National University
At The Australian National University, students from the 2011 class in Concurrent and Distributed Systems provide an example of the high performance code they developed in undergraduate courses. The aim of the demo is to recharge all vehicles in a variable size swarm at an uncontrollable, roaming fuelling globe in a fully distributed manner. Each vehicle runs its own processes and can only communicate with nearby vehicles. It is a great example showing that GNAT is robust enough to serve as a workhorse in large multi-platform undergraduate class where substantial amounts of code is involved.
