Abstract:

The ART Advanced Real-Time Technology Project of Carnegie Mellon University is engaged in wide ranging research on hard real-time systems. The project has as its overall goal the development and demonstration of predictable and fault tolerant hard real-time computer systems. To achieve this goal, research is being conducted in three interrelated areas 1 The development of a theory of hard real-time resource management including scheduling and synchronization. In addition, this theory is being applied in a wide range of contexts including databases, communication networks and operating systems 2 The design and construction of an operating system ARTS 2.0 that supports predictable and fault tolerant real-time computer systems and demonstration and testing in the ARTS testbed to provide proof of concept and to gain understanding into aspects of the theory needing further refinement. 3 Development of hardware architectures and approaches to fault tolerance that can support predictable hard real-time computer systems.
