9th RTL Workshop: A Client-Server Based Real-Time Control Tool for Complex Distributed Systems

Nov 20, 2000 — by LinuxDevices Staff — from the LinuxDevices Archive — 1 views

Today's trends in Control Engineering and Computer Engineering are blending gradually into a slightly challenging area, the improvement of Real-Time implementations. Applications should timely deliver synchronized data-sets, minimize latency and jitter in their response and by using an efficient scheduling algorithm to be able to determine various system resources to meet optimal allocation and their… performance specifications. As Real-Time systems are increasing their complexity and safety-critical aspects, there is a new trend to raise software development level of abstraction from programming languages to concrete standard models. By accepting the challenge of developing a Real Time application we had been able to design and build a slightly alternative method to implement control algorithms in industrial distributed systems.

Keywords: Real-Time, Linux, RTAI, threads, Hard Real-Time, Soft Real-Time, C++, COMEDI, Java, TCP/IP, Grafcet, distributed systems.
