We present a formal approach to implement fault-tolerance in real-time embedded systems. The initial fault-intolerant system consists of a set of independent periodic tasks scheduled onto a set of fail-silent processors connected by a reliable communication network. We transform the tasks such that, assuming the availability of an additional spare(More)
In data grid systems, data replication aims to increase availability, fault tolerance, load balancing and scalability while reducing bandwidth consumption, and job execution time. Several classification schemes for data replication were proposed in the literature, (i) static vs. dynamic, (ii) centralized vs. decentralized, (iii) push vs. pull, and (iv)(More)
In this paper, we present an adaptive method for maximizing network bandwidth utilization for the real-time applications. RTP protocol is chosen as the transport protocol and the network utilization is provided by increasing and decreasing the transmission rate of the RTP traffic. Our method employs a PID controller that keeps the RTP packet loss fraction(More)
We present a formal approach to implement and certify fault-tolerance in real-time embedded systems. The fault-intolerant initial system consists of a set of independent periodic tasks scheduled onto a set of fail-silent processors. We transform the tasks such that, assuming the availability of an additional spare processor, the system tolerates one failure(More)
VHDL programs are often tested by means of simulations, relying on test benches written intuitively. In this paper, we propose a formal approach to construct test benches from system specification. To consider the real-time properties of VHDL programs, we first transform them to timed automata and then perform model checking against the properties(More)
With the significant growth in the cloud-based systems, many industries give their attention to cloud computing solutions. E-learning is a promising application area since its typical requirements such as dynamically allocation of computation and storage resources, coincide well with cloud characteristics. This paper presents some possible cloud solutions(More)
Cause-Effect Graph Testing is a popular technique used for almost four decades. Based on Boolean algebra, this technique assists deriving test cases from a given specification informally written in a natural language. The present paper suggests Boolean differentiation for formalizing this technique. The new approach is applied to an example, borrowed from(More)
This paper presents an implementation of feedback control strategy on distributed static scheduling. The static schedule is created taking into account the average execution times of the tasks. Feedback control algorithm handles the unestimated dynamic behaviors in the system and keeps the performance at a desired level. The approach of feedback control(More)
