Time-sensitive-aware scheduling traffic system is capable to eliminate the queuing delay in the network that resulting hard real-time guarantees. Hence, this article aims to develop a time-sensitive-aware scheduling traffic system which is able to avoid multiple time-sensitive flows from conducting in the same path simultaneously so that the queueing delay can be eliminated. Under this prologue, an algorithm Time-Sensitive-Aware Scheduling Traffic (TSA-ST) is proposed to reduce the time complexity in the transmission schedule while maintaining the quality of the scheduling system. In the end, the transmission schedule will be computed in different network topologies to evaluate the performance and accuracy.
