The 4diac project provides an open source infrastructure for distributed Industrial Process Measurement and Control Systems (IPMCS) based on the IEC 61499 standard. This infrastructure includes:
- the Eclipse based engineering tool called 4diac-IDE,
- the portable and efficient real-time capable runtime environment called FORTE,
- libraries providing commonly need application functionality (4diac-LIB), and
- selected sample applications showing the key features (4diac-Systems).
