About this book


This book describes the emerging field of self-organizing, multicore, distributed and real-time embedded systems.  Self-organization of both hardware and software can be a key technique to handle the growing complexity of modern computing systems. Distributed systems running hundreds of tasks on dozens of processors, each equipped with multiple cores, requires self-organization principles to ensure efficient and reliable operation. This book addresses various, so-called Self-X features such as self-configuration, self-optimization, self-adaptation, self-healing and self-protection.

  • Presents open components for embedded real-time adaptive and self-organizing applications;
  • Describes innovative techniques in: scheduling, memory management, quality of service, communications supporting organic real-time applications;
  • Covers multi-/many-core embedded systems supporting real-time adaptive systems and power-aware, adaptive hardware and software systems;
  • Includes case studies of open embedded real-time self-organizing system developments supporting real-time applications.
