Scheduling and Optimization of Embedded Control Systems

Project Description

Modern embedded control systems comprise several periodic or sporadic tasks that execute on platforms with several computation and communication components. The sharing of the computation and communication resources among the tasks leads to complex system timing that in turn influences the control quality directly. The degradation of control quality can be minimized by proper scheduling of tasks and messages, as well as by using delay compensation during controller synthesis. In this project we use these two techniques to develop algorithms for scheduling and synthesis of distributed embedded control systems. We are also interested in studying the scheduling problem for multi-mode and event-based control systems.

Project Members


We have some collaboration and joint publications with the Department of Automatic Control at Lund University, Sweden.
