Application design issues

Part of the The Springer International Series in Engineering and Computer Science book series (SECS, volume 416)


In this chapter we discuss some important issues related to the design and the development of complex real-time applications requiring sensory acquisition, control, and actuation of mechanical components. The aim of this part is to give a precise characterization of control applications, so that theory developed for real-time computing and scheduling algorithms can be practically used in this field to make complex control systems more reliable. In fact, a precise observation of the timing constraints specified in the control loops and in the sensory acquisition processes is a necessary condition for guaranteeing a stable behavior of the controlled system, as well as a predictable performance.
