Real Time Operating System (RTOS)

  • Maurizio Di Paolo EmilioEmail author


A real-time system relies on the correctness of the processes execution time; system error is considered the violation of timing constraints. A real-time operating system (RTOS) is a crucial element on the Embedded system, but not the only one. It must ensure that each critical process takes place within the limits, using algorithms tailored to the demands of the system.
