  abstract= "This paper introduces a case study exploring some of the
     legacy issues that may be faced when redeveloping a system.
     The case study is a robotics system programmed in occam and
     Handel-C, allowing us to draw comparisons between software
     and hardware implementations in terms of program
     architecture, ease of program code verification, and
     differences in the behaviour of the robot. The two languages
     used have been selected because of their model of
     concurrency and their relation to CSP. The case study
     contributes evidence that re-implementing a system from
     an abstract model may present implementation specific issues
     despite maintaining the same underlying program control
     structure. The paper identifies these problems and suggests
     a number of steps that could be taken to help mitigate some
     of the issues."
