HARTIK: A real-time kernel for robotics applications

  title={HARTIK: A real-time kernel for robotics applications},
  author={Giorgio C. Buttazzo},
This paper presents a hard real-time kernel, called HARTIK, specifically designed to handle robotics applications with predictable response time. The main relevant features of this kernel include: direct specification of time constraints, such as periods and deadlines; preemptive scheduling; coexistence of hard, soft, and non real-time tasks: separation between time constraints and importance; deadline tolerance: dynamic guarantee of critical tasks; and graceful degradation in overload… CONTINUE READING
