This paper presents a protocol for resource sharing in a hierarchical real-time scheduling framework. Targeting real-time open systems, the protocol and the scheduling framework significantly reduce the efforts and errors associated with integrating multiple semi-independent subsystems on a single processor. Thus, our proposed techniques facilitate modern(More)
In this paper we present a component model for development of distributed real-time systems. The model is developed to support development of embedded control systems for ground vehicles. The model aims at supporting three important activities in real-time development, (i) design, (ii) analysis and (iii) synthesis. These activities emphasise different and(More)
With the increase of complexity in automotive control systems, the amount of data that needs to be managed is also increasing. Using a real-time database management system (RTDBMS) as a tightly integrated part of the software development process can give significant benefits with respect to data management. However, the variability of data management(More)
Earlier approximate response time analysis (RTA) methods for tasks with offsets (transactional task model) exhibit two major deficiencies: (i) They overestimate the calculated response times resulting in an overly pessimistic result. (ii) They suffer from time complexity problems resulting in an RTA method that may not be applicable in practice. This paper(More)
With the growing interest in wireless sensor networks, energy efficient communication infrastructures for such networks are becoming increasingly important. In this paper, we compare and simulate asymmetric and symmetric communication in sensor networks. We do this by extending LEACH, a well-known TDMA cluster-based sensor network architecture, to use(More)
We present a contract-based technique to achieve reuse of known worst-case execution times (WCET) in conjunction with reuse of software components. For resource constrained systems, or systems where high degree of predictability is needed, classical techniques for WCET- estimation will result in unacceptable overestimation of the execution-time of reusable(More)
The hierarchical scheduling framework (HSF) has been introduced as a design-time framework enabling compositional schedulability analysis of embedded software systems with real-time properties. In this paper a system consists of a number of semi-independent components called subsystems. Subsystems are developed independently and later integrated to form a(More)
This paper presents algorithms that (1) facilitate systemindependent synthesis of timing-interfaces for subsystems and (2) system-level selection of interfaces to minimize CPU load. The results presented are developed for hierarchical fixed-priority scheduling of subsystems that may share logical recourses (i.e., semaphores). We show that the use of shared(More)
