Real-time and embedded applications normally have constraints both with respect to timeliness and freshness of data they use. At the same time it is important that the resources are utilized as efficient as possible, e.g., for CPU resources unnecessary calculations should be lowered as much as possible. This is especially true for vehicle control systems,(More)
In this article, a novel on-line path planning algorithm for an articulated vehicle, moving in a partially known and sensory based reconstructed environment, and relying on Model Predictive Control will be presented. The proposed algorithm belongs to the family of bug like path planning algorithms and has the capability to take under consideration the real(More)
This paper investigates on the development and implementation of a high integrity navigation system based on the combined use of the Global Positioning System (GPS) and an inertial measurement unit (IMU) for land vehicle applications. The complementary properties of the GPS and the INS have motivated several works dealing with their fusion by using a Kalman(More)
Real-time databases handle reading and writing of data with time constraints on transactions. Normally, data items in a real-time system have freshness requirements which need to be guaranteed, and for many transactions it is important that accessed data items origin from the same system state, which can be ensured by letting the transactions read a(More)
In this paper we consider data freshness and overload handling in embedded systems. The requirements on data management and overload handling are derived from an engine control software. Data items need to be up-to-date, and to achieve this data dependencies must be considered, i.e., updating a data item requires other data items are up-to-date. We also(More)
In this article a fault detection scheme for stator winding short circuit fault detection in the case of a three phase induction motor is being presented. The three phase motor is being modeled in the equivalent two phase motor (q-d) space, while the modeling of the faulty case is being also formulated. The motor is being identified by the utilization of(More)
