Abstract:

The goals of StarLite project are twofold. First, we investigate new technologies associated with the construction of real-time, distributed operating systems, database systems, and communication networks. Secondly, the research will produce tools and experimental systems, using the StarLite software prototyping environment. The issues being addressed are priority-based scheduling, methodology for developing prototyping tools, system integration, operating system support and interface issues, and fault-tolerance in real-time computing. Our research is directed towards discovering a set of design principles and developing efficient algorithms for distributed real-time systems and database systems. In addition to theoretical study, we are also developing experimental systems and prototyping tools for performance evaluation of new technology.
