Abstract

Global time slotting is a key functionality for distributed real-time computer systems and in particular for deterministic medium access. In this chapter, we explain the foundations of global time slotting, present our flexible solution ProSlot of the ProNet 4.0 protocol stack (Christmann et al. in Proceedings of the 6th international conference on pervasive and embedded computing (PEC 2016), Lisbon, Portugal, pp. 17–27, 2016 [2]; Engel et al. in E-business and telecommunications (ICETE 2017), communications in computer and information science, Springer, vol. 990, pp. 313–336, 2019 [3]), survey and assess related work, and draw conclusions.
