Brief Summary of ProposalA thorough understanding of the foundations that distinguish real-time computing from fast computing is necessary for effectively harnessing the capabilities of novel devices such as tiny microcontrollers, wireless transceivers, sensors and actuators for a variety of engineering applications. This course will introduce Electrical and Computer Engineering graduate students to the theory of scheduling. Fixed priority scheduling theory for periodic, aperiodic and sporadic tasks will be emphasized. Students will be able to synthesize tasksets and analyze the schedulability of these tasksets at the end of the course. This course complements current courses on control systems and embedded systems in our department, and the Distributed Systems or Operating Systems courses offered by the Department of Computer Science.----RESOURCE STATEMENT: Implementation will require no additional resources. ----PROPOSAL CONTACT: SHIVAKUMAR SASTRY
