    There are currently several ways to treat cancer. One of these is radiotherapy. Proton therapy is a type of radiotherapy, that destroys cancer cells with the help of proton beams. Proton therapy is an advantage over a more commonly used photon beam therapy, as it provides better control in the delivery of rays. Their direction and speed can be managed with a higher precision, which implicates a more sophisticated control system. In collaboration with Cosylab, a simulator of such a system was developed. The simulator is necessary for testing and validating the operation of the treatment control system for proton therapy. The simulator implementation includes the implementation of the device's operation, its simulator, communication between them, and communication with the proton therapy treatment control system.
