Hierarchical scheduling provides a modular framework for integrating, scheduling and guaranteeing timing constraints of compositional real-time systems. In such a scheduling framework, all modules should receive a sufficient portion of the shared CPU to be able to guarantee timing constraints of their internal parts. In dynamic systems i.e., systems where(More)
Processor partitioning and hierarchical scheduling have been widely used for composing hard real-time systems on a shared hardware platform while preserving the timing requirements of the systems. Due to the safety critical nature of hard real-time systems, a conservative analysis is often used for deriving a sufficient partition size. Applying the exact(More)
In our previous work, we have introduced an adaptive hierarchical scheduling framework as a solution for composing dynamic real-time systems, i.e., systems where the CPU demand of their tasks are subjected to unknown and potentially drastic changes during run-time. The framework uses the PI controller which periodically adapts the system to the current load(More)
FPGA has been used in many robotics projects for real-time image processing. It provides reliable systems with low execution time and simplified timing analysis. Many of these systems take a lot of time in development and testing phases. In some cases, it is not possible to test the system in real environments very often, due to accessibility, availability(More)
Cloud computing is an evolving paradigm which is becoming an adoptable technology for a variety of applications. However, cloud infrastructures must be able to fulfill application requirements before adopting cloud solutions. Cloud infrastructure providers communicate the characteristics of their services to their customers through Service Level Agreements(More)
In a hierarchical scheduling framework, a resource can be shared among modules with different criticality levels. In our recently introduced adaptive hierarchical scheduling framework, modules receive a dynamic portion of the CPU during run-time. While providing temporal isolation is one of the main advantages of hierarchical scheduling, in an adaptive(More)
FPGA-based solutions have become more common in embedded systems these days. These systems need to communicate with external world. Considering high-speed and popularity of Ethernet communication, a reliable real-time Ethernet component inside FPGA is of special value. To that end, this paper presents a new solution for 100 Mb/s FPGA-based Ethernet(More)
In this paper, we propose a new protocol for handling resource sharing among prioritized real-time applications composed on a multiprocessor platform. We propose an optimal priority assignment algorithm which assigns unique priorities to the applications based on information in their interfaces. We have performed experimental evaluations to compare the(More)
We have introduced an adaptive hierarchical scheduling framework as a solution for composing dynamic realtime systems, i.e., systems where the CPU demand of its tasks are subjected to unknown and potentially drastic changes during runtime. The framework consists of a controller which periodically adapts the system to the current load situation. In this(More)
Complexity in the real-time embedded software domain has been growing rapidly. The component-based software development approach facilitates the development process of such software systems by dividing a complex system into a number of simpler components. Resource reservation techniques have been widely used for providing resources to real-time software(More)
