    After the introduction of fieldbus technology, real-time Ethernet (RTE) systems now form the second generation of industrial communication systems (2G ICS). A lot of different approaches for RTEs appeared during the last years, most of them optimized for specific use cases or application domains. From a user's perspective, the transition from a proved fieldbus system to a RTE only makes sense, if ... View full abstract»

    The industrial communication scenario is experiencing the introduction of wireless networks at all levels of factory automation systems. The benefits deriving from such an innovation are manifold, even if wireless systems cannot be thought as a complete replacement of wired networks. Rather, they will be even more used in the near future to realize hybrid (wired/wireless) configurations. In partic... View full abstract»

    The deployment of wireless technologies in industrial networks is very promising mainly due to their inherent flexibility. However, current wireless solutions lack the capability to provide the deterministic, low delay service required by many industrial applications. Moreover, the high level of interference generated by industrial equipment limits the coverage that ensures acceptable performance.... View full abstract»

    A two-hop neighborhood information-based routing protocol is proposed for real-time wireless sensor networks. The approach of mapping packet deadline to a velocity is adopted as that in SPEED; however, our routing decision is made based on the novel two-hop velocity integrated with energy balancing mechanism. Initiative drop control is embedded to enhance energy utilization efficiency, while reduc... View full abstract»

    Performance analysis of fixed-size contention window carrier sense multiple-access (CSMA) protocol with geometric distribution for slot selection probability is addressed in the paper. This MAC scheme, called Sift, was initially proposed for large-scale event-driven wireless sensor networks. The goal of the present paper is to evaluate the standard performance measures (throughput, protocol capaci... View full abstract»

    Deterministic replay is used during testing to reproduce a scenario and drive the system under test to a given state. In this work, we replay an a priori defined bus traffic to influence the clock synchronization mechanism. Beyond testing this distributed mechanism itself, our aim is to draw conclusions on the nodes' bus receiver operation. Since these replay activities are part of a transp... View full abstract»

    Recently, distributed agents are increasingly adopted in automation control systems, where they are used for monitoring, data collection, fault diagnosis and control. However, existing agent platforms do not always fulfill the requirements of practical automation applications in respect of real-time properties and resource usage. Often, they offer a lot of functionality that is not necessary in au... View full abstract»

    The characteristics of the IEEE 802.15.4 physical and medium access layers make such a protocol a suitable candidate to support communication between sensors and actuators in industrial environments. As industrial networks may comprise a large number of sensors and actuators and the delay increases with the increased number of nodes, a possible solution to keep the delay small is the use of multip...

    Time Petri nets (TPNs) have been widely used for the verification and validation of real-time systems during the software development process. Their quantitative analysis consists in applying enumerative techniques that suffer the well known state space explosion problem. To overcome this problem, several methods have been proposed in the literature, that either provide rules to obtain equivalent ... View full abstract»

    In modern factories, personal computers are starting to replace traditional programmable logic controllers, due to cost and flexibility reasons, and also because their operating systems now support programming environments even suitable for demanding real-time applications. These characteristics, as well as the ready availability of many software packages covering any kind of needs, have made the ... View full abstract»
