Real-time systems. Design principles for distributed embedded applications. 2nd ed. (English) Zbl 1226.68001
Real-Time Systems Series. New York, NY: Springer (ISBN 978-1-4419-8236-0/hbk). xviii, 376 p. (2011).
The focus of this book lies on the design of distributed real-time system at the architecture level. The book explains the fundamental concepts related to the progression of time on a number of practical insightful examples from industry. The conceptual model of a distributed real-time distributed system is extended and precise definitions of important time-related concepts, such as sparse time, state, temporal accuracy of real-time data, and determinism are given. It is assumed that the reader of this book has a background in basic computer science or computer engineering or has some practical experience in the design or implementation of embedded systems.
