About the Authors
  • Real-time systems need to react to certain input stimuli within given time bounds. For example, an airbag in a car has to unfold within 300 milliseconds in a crash. There are many embedded safety-critical applications and each requires real-time specification techniques. This text introduces three of these techniques, based on logic and automata: duration calculus, timed automata, and PLC-automata. The techniques are brought together to form a seamless design flow, from real-time requirements specified in the duration calculus; via designs specified by PLC-automata; and into source code for hardware platforms of embedded systems. The syntax, semantics, and proof methods of the specification techniques are introduced; their most important properties are established; and real-life examples illustrate their use. Detailed case studies and exercises conclude each chapter. Ideal for students of real-time systems or embedded systems, this text will also be of great interest to researchers and professionals in transportation and automation.

    • Describes real-time systems formally at the levels of requirements, design specifications, and programs
    • Practical aspects are supported by tools that are freely available on the web
    • Introduces automatic verification (model checking) methods for design specifications against real-time requirements
    • Gives automatic translation functions of design specifications to real-time programs
    • Web site http://csd.informatik.uni-oldenburg.de/rt-book includes source code; further exercises; supplementary reading; links to tools used or discussed in the book
