Real-Time Systems
  Fall 2007

"You may delay, but time will not."
Benjamin Franklin


In real-time systems and applications, both functional and temporal specifications have to be fulfilled for correct operation. That is, systems have to produce results not only logically correct but also according to certain timing constraints. Real-time systems are often embedded in larger systems, such as airplanes, cars, robots, medical equipment, communication devices, and entertainment systems. But also multimedia systems, financial transaction systems, video gaming devices, and many other applications can be considered as real-time systems. In this course, we will study and discuss the concepts of real-time system design, different scheduling approaches, admission control, real-time communications, and techniques to manage computing resources and to meet application-specific Quality-of-Service constraints.
