    The controller area network (CAN) is a field bus that is nowadays widespread in distributed embedded systems due to its electrical robustness, low price, and deterministic access delay. However, its use in safety-critical applications has been controversial due to dependability limitations, such as those arising from its bus topology. In particular, in a CAN bus, there are multiple components such... View full abstract»

    Flexible time division multiple access (FTDMA) is a medium access mechanism that some modern popular networks for use in passenger vehicles, such as Byteflight and FlexRay, rely on. Its development was driven explicitly by the new needs of automotive x-by-wire systems, which could not be satisfied by the existing solutions. The FTDMA technique was conceived primarily to overcome the limitations of... View full abstract»

    The traditional approaches to the design of distributed safety-critical systems, due to fault-tolerance reasons, have mostly considered static cyclic table-based traffic scheduling. However, there is a growing demand for operational flexibility and integration, mainly to improve efficiency in the use of system resources, with the network playing a central role to support such properties. This call... View full abstract»

    During the design of large technical systems, the use of analytic and simulative models to test and dimension the system before implementation is of practical importance for an efficient and reliable design process. However, setting up the necessary models is time-consuming and therefore often too expensive in practice. Usually most information for modeling is already available in the design tool ...

    The (m, k) -firm model has recently drawn a lot of attention. It provides a flexible real-time system with graceful degradation of the quality of service (QoS), thus achieving the fault tolerance in case of system overload. In this paper, we focus on the distance-based priority (DBP) algorithm as it presents the interesting feature of dynamically assigning the... View full abstract»

    Wireless communication systems are rapidly becoming a viable solution for employment at the lowest level of factory automation systems, usually referred to as either "device" or "field" level, where the requested performance may be rather critical in terms of both transmission time and reliability. In this paper, we deal with the use of wireless networks at the device level. Specifically, after an... View full abstract»
