The new generation of embedded systems for automotive applications can take advantage of low-cost multipro-cessor system-on a chip architectures. The real-time software applications running on these systems require real-time processor scheduling, and also require the management of the communication and synchronization of tasks executing on different(More)
1 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)
Next generation embedded systems will demand applications with increasing complexity, that a standard uniprocessor microcontroller architecture will likely be unsuited to support. A possible solution to cope with embedded applications with high computational requirements is to adopt multiple-processor-on-a-chip architec-tures. This paper discusses the(More)
—Ethernet was not originally developed to meet the requirements of real-time industrial automation systems and it was commonly considered unsuited for applications at the field level. Hence, several techniques were developed to make this protocol exhibit real-time behavior, some of them requiring specialized hardware, others providing soft-real-time(More)
The adoption of AUTOSAR in the development of automotive electronics can increase the portability and reuse of functional components. Inside each component, the behavior is represented by a set of runnables, defining reactions executed in response to an event or periodic computations. The implementation of AUTOSAR runnables in a concurrent program executing(More)
