Course Description

This course introduces students to the design of real-time computing systems and corresponding theory. Real-time systems applications typically involve safety or mission critical systems where timing guarantees must be maintained. Real-time task design, dependability, communication, power and energy awareness, scheduling, and real-time control are some of the topics that will be covered. The course will be biased toward real-time system design including the interactions between the physical and real-time systems - dubbed “cyber-physical systems.” The course will include homework and readings from the literature, leading students toward the completion of a final project. Students will be encouraged to apply concepts to their research (if applicable) for their class project. Students should have a basic understanding of programming, system design, robotics, or computer architecture.
