#ESUG16: Controlling Machines with Smalltalk on Raspberry PI (Partner Talk)
The first example is a service lift which was built in 1911 powered by a crank. The crank was to be replaced by an electric cable winch. The control was implemented in Smalltalk on a Raspberry pi. The main advantage of Smalltalk as control language is abstraction over standard PLC technology.
