Abstract

This chapter introduces the fundamental issues of real-time computing. A definition and classification of real-time computer systems as well as the computer requirements for real-time applications are discussed. Systems issues, such as specifications, analysis and verification, real-time architectures and operating systems, and real-time communications are also presented. Several real-time measures and metrics are discussed and evaluated.
