Control applications are now increasingly mapped onto multiprocessor architectures, a familiar example being automotive platforms which now consist of more than 80 electronic control units (ECUs). Such control systems typically consist of several control loops, with different parts of each control application being mapped onto different processors that communicate over one or more communication buses. In such setups, the system architecture and scheduling policies have a significant impact on control performance. In this talk we will discuss both, platform architecture, as well as software design techniques for such setups, in order to satisfy real-time and control performance constraints.
