Learning Outcomes

Having passed the course, the student recognizes a real-time system and knows methods to ensure that the system functions according to the timing requirements set to it. In particular, the student knows the most important of the widely used real-time scheduling methods, their properties, and ways to verify, if the system employing the scheduling method fulfills its real-time requirements or not. The student has written a small program to satisfy real-time requirements if progamming assignment is included in the course implementation.


Content Core content Complementary knowledge Specialist knowledge
1. When is a system a real-time system. Real-time requirements and representing these. Hard and soft real-time systems. Periodic, aperiodic and sporadic tasks.     
2. Clock scheduling and structured clock scheduling; in particular, cyclic EDF-scheduling. Construction and implementation of these.  When is clock scheduling applicable and when not.   
3. Priority scheduling methods: EDF, LST, RM, and DM; their properties. Validation of systems employing these. Schedulable utilization.  When is priority scheduling applicable and when not.   
4. Resource allocation methods in real-time systems and their basic properties.     
5. Common properties of real-time operating systems.     
6. Writing a small program to satisfy real-time requirements.
