Multiagent technologies are usually considered to be suitable for constructing agent organizations that are capable of running in dynamic and distributed environments and that are able to adapt to changes as the system runs. The necessary condition for this adaptation ability is to make agents aware of significant changes in both the environment and the(More)
API extensions and performance improvements to the Linux operating system now enable it to serve as a platform for a range of embedded real-time applications, using fixed-priority preemptive scheduling. Powerful techniques exist for analytical verification of application timing constraints under this scheduling model. However, when the application is(More)
In hard real-time systems, gain time is defined as the difference between the Worst Case Execution Time (WCET) of a hard task and its actual processor consumption at runtime. This paper presents the results of an empirical study about how the presence of a significant amount of gain time in a hard real-time system questions the advantages of using the most(More)
