Declarative Programming of Fischertechnik Robots

We are collaborating with Fischertechnik GmbH to develop novel ways to program their robots. Currently, the robots are programmed either with a high-level but rather limited graphical flow chart language, or using a low-level imperative API. The goal of this thesis is to design and implement a library for high-level modular but general functional programming for the Fischertechnik ROBO TXT controller. This library should be based either on the ``How to Design Worlds” approach by Felleisen et al or in the style of functional reactive programming.

Finished Thesis Topics

Strong Reduction in Lambda Calculus and its Use in Program Optimization

Program optimization by compilers is important - especially for functional programming languages. Yet at least parts of it remain a ”black art”, as Simon Peyton Jones describes the inlining technique in [0], full of compromises and heuristics. The problem, known as code bloat, is that optimization techniques might actually make performance worse by inlining too much, blowing up the code size.

Testen von Integrierten Entwicklungsumgebungen

In dieser Bachelorarbeit geht es um das automatische Testen einer eigens programmierten integrierten Entwicklungsumgebung. Die Applikation wird in Qt/C++ programmiert und mittels des Testframeworks Squish getestet. Dabei wird zuerst im Allgemeinen auf Qt und Squish eingegangen. Darauf folgen Vorgehensweise und Entwicklungswerkzeuge. Im Anschluss wird die Applikation, welche Hypertext Phoenix genannt wird, beschrieben. Das letzte und längste Kapitel widmet sich komplett dem Testen. Hier wird auf allgemeine Themen wie Tests von Hypertext Phoenix mit Beispielen eingegangen. Abschluss dieses Kapitels bildet der Nutzen von Tests.
