Implementation-Aware Embedded Control Systems

Karl-Erik Årzén, Anton Cervin, Dan Henriksson


Most embedded control systems have constrained computational resources. This makes codesign of the control algorithms and the real-time scheduling an interesting issue. There is also a strong trend in the real-time community of moving away from the hard real-time model. Hence, embedded controllers must be designed so that they are aware of the resource constraints and timing uncertainty of the implementation platform. This paper discusses temporal determinism, design approaches, and codesign tools for such systems.
