Data Services in Distributed Real-Time Embedded Systems
Source: University of Virginia
The computing systems are becoming deeply embedded into ordinary life and interact with physical processes and events. They monitor the physical world with sensors and provide appropriate reaction and control over it. This cyber-physical interaction, which occurs through ubiquitous embedded systems, has the potential to transform how humans interact with and control the physical world. Applications of such systems include medical and healthcare systems, agile manufacturing, military applications, and environmental monitoring and control. For these applications, the demand for real-time data services is increasing since they are inherently data-intensive.
