Selecting a Topology for Safety-Critical Real-Time Control Systems

  title={Selecting a Topology for Safety-Critical Real-Time Control Systems},
  author={Mark Nicholson},
In recent years the functionality required of computer based control systems for safetycritical real-time applications has increased dramatically. Inevitably this has led to an explosion in the complexity of such systems and an understanding, in both academia and industry, that existing design methods are no longer adequate. One design issue that has traditionally been addressed in an ad hoc and rather simplistic manner is that of setting the topology of a distributed computer based control… CONTINUE READING
