This talk covers the potential benefits of the general idea of reactive system programming to robotics. Starting with a definition and taxonomy of reactive systems, some famous examples - namely dataflow architectures are presented and grouped into the greater picture. Given this introduction, a first realization of a hybrid dataflow architecture on reconfigurable hardware is explained. Based on this architecture, the benefits as well as future steps towards reactive robotic systems are discussed.
