Real-time Systems Scheduling 1
FundamentalseBook - 2014
Real-time systems are used in a wide range of applications,including control, sensing, multimedia, etc. Scheduling is acentral problem for these computing/communication systems sinceresponsible of software execution in a timely manner. This bookprovides state of knowledge in this domain with special emphasis onthe key results obtained within the last decade.
This book addresses foundations as well as the latest advancesand findings in Real-Time Scheduling, giving all references toimportant papers. But nevertheless the chapters will be short andnot overloaded with confusing details. Coverage includes schedulingapproaches for mono-core as well as multi-core platforms, dependenttasks, networks, and notably very tremendous recent advances inscheduling of energy constrained embedded systems. Othersophisticated issues such as feedback control scheduling and timinganalysis of critical applications are also addressed.
This volume can serve as a textbook for courses on the topic inbachelor and in more advanced master programs. It also provides areference for computer scientists and engineers involved in thedesign or the development of Cyber-Physical Systems which requireup-to-date real-time scheduling solutions.
