    Fault tolerance is an important aspect in real-time computing. In real-time control systems, tasks could be faulty due to various reasons. Faulty tasks may compromise the performance and safety of the whole system and even cause disastrous consequences. In this paper, we describe On-demand real-time guard (ORTEGA), a new software fault tolerance architecture for real-time control systems. ORTEGA h... View full abstract»

    Distributed real-time systems, such as factory automation systems, require that computer nodes communicate with a known and low bound on the communication delay. This can be achieved with traditional time division multiple access (TDMA). But improved flexibility and simpler upgrades are possible through the use of TDMA with slot-skipping (TDMA/SS), meaning that a slot is skipped whenever it is not... View full abstract»

    Time-triggered protocol (TTP) is a time-division multiple access (TDMA)-based bus protocol designed for use in safety-critical avionics and automotive distributed embedded systems. Design space exploration (DSE) for TTP-based distributed embedded system involves searching through a vast design space of possible task-to-CPU mappings, task/message schedules and bus access configurations to achieve c...

    In wireless sensor networks each sensor node has very limited resources, and it is very difficult to find and collect them. For this reason, updating or adding programs in sensor nodes must be performed via a communication channel at run-time. Many code update protocols have been developed for sensor networks, ranging from function-level update to full-image replacement. However, they provide only... View full abstract»

    This paper describes a control strategy of a proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controller based on stability analysis considering passivity in null space motion of redundant manipulator. Control spaces of redundant manipulator are divided into work space and null space. In the proposed approach, a disturbance observer is employed in work space, which is called work space observer. On the othe... View full abstract»

    In this study, a novel identification technique, that is high-gain observer-based identification approach, is proposed for systems with bounded process and measurement noises. For system parameters with abnormal changes, an adaptive change detection and parameter identification algorithm is next presented. The presented technique and algorithm are finally applied to the parameter identification of... View full abstract»

    Safety analysis in systems engineering (SE) processes, as usually implemented, rarely relies on formal methods such as model checking since such techniques, however powerful and mature, are deemed too complex for efficient use. This paper thus aims at improving the verification practice in SE design: considering the widely-used model of enhanced function flow block diagrams (EFFBDs), it formally e... View full abstract»

    Due to increasingly demanding requirements for business flexibility and agility, automation of end-to-end industrial processes has become an important topic. Business process execution needs to support automated tasks execution as well as human tasks. In this paper we show that for certain types of human tasks it is relevant to consider their further automation. We propose a service-oriented archi... View full abstract»

    Current systems for automatic identification of goods presume a single administrative domain. However, in supply chain management systems temporary cooperations of multiple companies exist, and the usage of one identification device, such as a radio-frequency identification (RFID) tag, per company is infeasible for reasons of costs, space requirements, traceability, and higher collision rate. This... View full abstract»

    In distributed manufacturing systems, especially in a manufacturing grid (MGrid) system, there are primarily two kinds of manufacturing tasks (or resource service requests): (1) single resource service request task (SRSRTask), which can be completed by invoking only one resource service, and (2) multi-resource service request task (MRSRTask), which is completed by invoking several resource service...
