    A growing class of real-time systems require end-to-end support for various quality-of-service (QoS) aspects, including bandwidth, latency, jitter and dependability. Applications include command and control, manufacturing process control, videoconferencing, large-scale distributed interactive simulation, and testbeam data acquisition. These systems require support for stringent QoS requirements. T... View full abstract»

    After discussing advances in wired networking in a previous column (see ibid., p.107-9, April 2000), I now turn to advances in wireless networking. Wireless networks can include everything from cellular, personal communications system (PCS), and Group System for Mobile communications (GSM) networks to wireless LANs, satellite-based networks, and fixed wireless networks. Many of these technologies ... View full abstract»

    Ideally, according to the author, a real-time distributed programming method should be based on a general high-level style that could be easily accommodated by application programmers using C++ and Java. If such a method were to exist, these programmers could specify the interactions among distributed components and the timing requirements of various actions without expending much effort. Facilita...

    There have been three great revolutions in computing technology during the past 50 years: the stored-program computer, high-level languages and component-level programming. Although working programmers are well aware of this last revolution, it seems to have escaped the notice of most everyone else. The author feels that academic researchers are doing little or nothing that touches the subject and... View full abstract»

    The Jini community is an ongoing experiment in trying to mix open source development techniques with industrial engineering development. The Jini technology is an approach to distributed systems that uses several Java properties. In particular, the Jini environment makes heavy use of Java's ability to move objects, including each object's data and code, from one Java environment to another. The Ja... View full abstract»

    In 1995 Raytheon Systems initiated a program to develop a DSP-based array processor that would be used to process large amount of raw data from a sensor subsystem. However, because the next generation target processor had not yet been released the software development team had to complete a significant amount of the system and software development prior to the availability of the actual hardware. ...

    While the field of object-oriented real-time computing (ORC) is young, it is growing quickly because it offers such a wide range of applicability, from complex real-time systems to the next generation of computing and communication devices. The paper presents significant advances in both the art and science of ORC technology View full abstract»

    New languages, programming disciplines, operating systems, and software engineering techniques sometimes hold considerable potential for real-time software developers. A promising area of interest-but one fairly new to the real-time community-is object-oriented programming. Java, for example, draws heavily from object orientation and is highly suitable for extension to real-time and embedded syste... View full abstract»

    Current wisdom encourages designers to first focus on the logical aspects of their problem and then defer platform and technology issues until the concluding phases of development. This behavior is reasonable, considering that devising logically sound solutions is frequently the most difficult aspect of development. Unfortunately-and this has been understated to date-there are many situations in w... View full abstract»
