Scalable Scheduling Policy Design for Open Soft Real-Time Systems

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Open soft real-time systems, such as mobile robots, must respond adaptively to varying operating conditions, while balancing the need to perform multiple mission specific tasks against the requirement that those tasks complete in a timely manner. Setting and enforcing a utilization target for shared resources is a key mechanism for achieving this behavior. However, because of the uncertainty and non-preemptability of some tasks, key assumptions of classical scheduling approaches do not hold. In previous work, the authors presented foundational methods for generating task scheduling policies to enforce proportional resource utilization for open soft real-time systems with these properties.
