A Luos node is an hardware component connected to a Luos network. In other words, each MCU connected to the system is called a node. A node contains at least one package with one or more servicesSoftware element run by Luos that can communicate with other services. It can be a driver or an app..
The nodes are described by a set of unique characteristics:
- node_id: node's unique id.
- port_table: physical port connections.
Each node hosts the embedded Luos API, which allows services to communicate with others in the network. Nodes have specific network hardware access that have to be defined in the Luos's Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL). They can host, manage, and run services.
