Title: RE: fsmRecord preview

It would be most interesting to me to apply this to actuators and motion control. It could give much more control over the behavior of motion based devices.

Hi Michael

Very interesting to see a new initiative in this area.

Do you have a strong feeling yet or advice as to which
use cases the fsmRecord approach might best support
as opposed to those for which SNL would still be the
best fit ?

Looking forward to hearing more about it at the meeting.

Thanks and best regards

Simon Rees
