Hello all,
     My name is Scotty Smith.  I'm a Ph.D. student at the George Washington
University, currently researching programming
language constructs for supporting robotic planning applications.

     My project [1] involves the creation of a Lua library, which will allow
Lua scripts to be executed in RTEMS, as well as a
configuration so that Lua can be used as a shell in RTEMS.  Also with this
project, a Python to Lua translator will be developed,
which will allow some Python scripts to be executed in RTEMS through the Lua
library. The full proposal can be found here: [2].
