Scheduling is essential for the proper functioning of multi-core processors for parallel processing. A real-time embedded system has been extensively used for different fields such as control, scheduling, and monitoring. They will perform multiple tasks under schedule time constraints. Single-core processor system can run only one process at a time. Single-core processor cannot satisfy the applications of Real-Time applications. This system consumes more power which is not acceptable when scheduling through the Multi-core processor. To avoid these issues introduced Heterogeneous Multi-core Processors (HMP) which schedules the tasks much better when compared to homogenous multi-core processors. The main proposal of the study is to provide a solution to computational starving in real-time field. The starving mainly occurs due to the time spent for the scheduling of the real-time tasks in a multiprocessor system. This paper proposes an optimized multi-task scheduling algorithm that schedules the multiple tasks on different cores of a multi-core processor in an efficient way. This proposed algorithm increases the overall efficiency and it automatically allocates a suitable core processor for reducing time. The Proposed system is evaluated to priority, pipeline, preemption, and cyclic task scheduling which minimizes power consumption, response time, and avoid overload.
