High-performance operating system primitives for robotics and real-time control systems

GEM is being used on a multiprocessor with robotics application software of substantial size and complexity and is closely coupled to prototype real-time programming environments that provide programming support for the models of computation offered by the operating system.

Análise de sistemas operacionais de tempo real para aplicações de robótica e automação

This work presents a study about real time operating systems (RTOS) that are utilized as infrastructure to create digital control systems for mechatronics systems, and also for systems that have critical time constraints.

HdSC: modelagem de alto nível para simulação nativa de plataformas com suporte ao desenvolvimento de HdS

This work defined a set of constructors for processor-based platforms modeling, supporting HdS development and components reusability, techniques for static simulation timing estimation in native environment and support for multiprocessor platforms.



Architecture of the space shuttle primary avionics software system

PASS, perhaps the most complex flight computer program ever developed, epitomizes the benefits to be gained by establishing a well-structured system architecture at the front end of the development

Design, development, integration: space shuttle primary flight software system

The development of Space Shuttle software posed unique requirements above and beyond raw size (30 times larger than Saturn V software), complexity, and criticality.
