Networking communications play an important role to secure a dependable and timely operation of distributed and real-time embedded system applications; however, an effective real-time support is not yet properly addressed in the wireless realm. This paper presents Wi-STARK, a novel architecture for resilient and real-time wireless communications within a one-hop communication domain. Low level reliable (frame) communications, node failure detection, membership management, and networking partition control are provided; since these low level services extend and build upon the exposed interface offered by networking technologies, Wi-STARK is in strict compliance with wireless communication standards, such as IEEE 802.15.4 and IEEE 802.11p.
