I am working to build a new version of the ShaneAO control software, named ShadyAO. Some preliminary documenatation of the new instrument software can be found at http://people.ucsc.edu/~arrudy/ShadyAO/.

The new software will provide the building blocks to make ShaneAO more automated and robust to future changes.

It will also enable the use of a variety of different reconstructors in the ShaneAO system, which will facilitate my work on predictive control for adaptive optics.
