As CAN (Controller Area Network) is increasingly used in safety-critical applications, there is a need for accurate predictions of failure probability. In this paper we provide a general probabilistic schedulability analysis technique which is applied specifically to CAN to determine the effect of random network faults on the response times of messages. The(More)
The limitations of the deterministic formulation of scheduling are outlined and a probabilistic approach is motivated. A number of models are reviewed with one being chosen as a basic framework. Response-time analysis is extended to incorporate a probabilistic characterisation of task arrivals and execution times. Copulas are used to represent dependencies(More)
Scheduling theory generally assumes that real-time systems are mostly composed of activities with hard real-time requirements. Many systems are built today by composing different applications or components in the same system, leading to a mixture of many different kinds of requirements with small parts of the system having hard real-time requirements and(More)
The contribution of this paper is threefold. First, an improvement to a previously published paper on the timing analysis of Controller Area Network (CAN) in the presence of transient network faults is presented. A probabilistic fault model is considered, where random faults from electromagnetic interference occur according to a Poisson distribution. The(More)
Engineers who design hard real-time embedded systems express a need for several times the performance available today while keeping safety as major criterion. A breakthrough in performance is expected by parallelizing hard real-time applications and running them on an embedded multi-core processor, which enables combining the requirements for(More)
