Complex Real-Time Embedded Systems

Focus:

We focus on execution and analysis of real-time systems, with a particular focus on multiprocessor scheduling techniques, synchronization protocols, predictable execution of real-time systems, compositional theory and technology, and similar topics related to predictability of real-time systems. We also work with communication protocols and architectures based on Switched Ethernet. The most recent research direction is cloud and industrial Internet of Things (IoT). In summary: timing, execution, analysis and modeling of complex embedded real-time systems.


We conduct research in the following areas

  • Multiprocessor scheduling and synchronization
  • Predictable execution of real-time systems
  • Source code analysis for industrial embedded software
  • Simulation-based analysis of complex embedded systems
  • Stochastic and statistical analysis of real-time systems
  • Real-time communications
  • Adaptive and reconfigurable real-time systems
  • Compositional execution and analysis of real-time systems
  • Cloud and the Industrial Internet of Things
