Derivation and Use of Deadline Information in Real-Time Control Systems
This section presents a method for deriving the hard deadline of a real-time control system, which captures the interplay between a controlled process and its controller computer by formally specifying the need of the controlled process in a form understandable to the controller computer. Several examples of deriving and applying the hard-deadline information are also presented to demonstrate the importance of the deadline information.
