Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to construct and model safety-critical hard real-time systems, by using and working with time-dependent information, clock synchronization, real-time scheduling, timing analysis and real-time communication.

Cognitive and practical result: after completion of the course, students are able to analyse timing requirements and construct real-time computer systems.

Results in Social competence, qualifications in innovation and creativity: students are able to construct dependable real-time computer systems and increase the dependability of real-time computer systems.

Subject of course

  • Foundations: real-time systems, time-dependent information, logical and temporal order
  • Modeling of RTS: state and event, components, interfaces, real-time information
  • Real-time communication, communication protocols for RTS
  • Clock synchronization
  • Fault tolerance in real-time systems
  • Real-time operating systems: task structure, resource management, I/O, scheduling, worst-case execution time analysis of tasks
  • Energy consumption and energy management in RTS
  • RTS design: architectural styles and models, composability, design principles, certification

Teaching methods
