Uniprocessor scheduling of real-time synchronous dataflow tasks

The synchronous dataflow graph (SDFG) model is widely used today for modeling real-time applications in safety-critical application domains. Schedulability analysis techniques that are well understood within the real-time scheduling community are …


An industrial view on the common academic understanding of mixed-criticality systems

With the rapid evolution of commercial hardware platforms, in most application domains, the industry has shown a growing interest in integrating and running independently-developed applications of different “criticalities” in the same multi-core …


On the use of static branch prediction to reduce the worst-case execution time of real-time applications

Nowadays, real-time applications need more and more hardware performance. This increasing performance demands the use of deterministic performance enhancement features such as static branch prediction. In this paper we propose a new technique …


A hybrid performance analysis technique for distributed real-time embedded systems

It remains a challenging problem to tightly estimate the worst-case response time of an application in a distributed embedded system, especially when there are dependencies between tasks. Recently, a holistic worst-case response time analysis …

Über diese Zeitschrift

The journal Real-Time Systems publishes papers, short papers and correspondence articles that concentrate on real-time computing principles and applications. The contents include research papers, invited papers, project reports and case studies, standards and corresponding proposals for general discussion, and a partitioned tutorial on real-time systems as a continuing series.

The range of coverage is broad, including requirements engineering, specification and verification techniques, design methods and tools, programming languages, operating systems, scheduling algorithms, architecture, hardware and interfacing, dependability and safety, distributed and other novel architectures, wired and wireless communications, wireless sensor systems, distributed databases, artificial intelligence techniques, expert systems, and application case studies.

Real-time systems find application in command and control systems, process control, flight control, avionics, defense systems, vision and robotics, pervasive and ubiquitous computing, and an abundance of embedded systems.

Safety & Security – Erfolgsfaktoren von sensitiven Robotertechnologien

Forderungen von Industrie 4.0 nach vollständiger Vernetzung der Systeme geben der "Robotersicherheit" einen besonderen Stellenwert: Hierbei umfasst der deutsche Begriff Sicherheit die – im Englischen einerseits durch Safety umrissene physische Sicherheit – sowie andererseits die durch Security definierte informationstechnische Cyber-Sicherheit. Dieser Fachbeitrag aus der e&i beleuchtet eingehend die wesentlichen Aspekte von Safety und Security in der Robotik.
