Publisher’s description: Real-time and embedded systems are essential to our lives, from controlling car engines and regulating traffic lights to monitoring plane takeoffs and landings to providing up-to-the-minute stock quotes. Bringing together researchers from both academia and industry, this handbook provides comprehensive coverage of the most advanced and timely topics in the field.
The book focuses on several major areas of real-time and embedded systems. It examines real-time scheduling and resource management issues and explores the programming languages, paradigms, operating systems, and middleware for these systems. The handbook also presents challenges encountered in wireless sensor networks and offers ways to solve these problems. It addresses key matters associated with real-time data services and reviews the formalisms, methods, and tools used in real-time and embedded systems. In addition, the book considers how these systems are applied in various fields, including adaptive cruise control in the automobile industry.
With its essential material and integration of theory and practice, this handbook facilitates advancements in this area so that the services we rely on can continue to operate successfully.
The book offers real-time scheduling and resource management solutions, including rate-based resource allocation methods, a hierarchical scheduling framework, and management techniques for low-power embedded systems. It addresses the critical need for reliable, efficient, and scalable real-time wireless communication, providing an overview of a first-generation implementation of snBench, presents methods and tools to optimize real-time databases and data services, including optimistic concurrency control early discard (OCC-ED) and DeeDS NG, and illustrates different approaches and models for designing real-time systems.
