Programmability is a major challenge in spatial computing, anaggregate control problem found in domains such as sensor networks,swarm robotics, and modular robotics. We address this challenge witha model of a spatial computer (Proto Abstract Machine) and adistributed operating system, ProtoKernel, which implements PAMapproximately. ProtoKernel has been demonstrated on platforms inthree spatial computing domains: sensor networks, swarm robotics, andmodular robotics.
