COSC 4352.03 Real-Time Systems Practice



In real-time computing systems the correctness of the system depends not only on the logical result of the computation but also on the time at which the results are produced. For example, a computer controlling a robot on the factory floor of a flexible manufacturing system, must stop or turn the robot aside in time to prevent a collision with some other object on the factory floor. Other examples of current real-time systems include communication systems, traffic systems, nuclear power plants and space shuttle and avionic systems.

This course is an introduction to the use and applications of real-time systems and programming languages. The course will include the following among other things.

Prerequisites: general prerequisites, including COSC3301.03 or COSC3311.03 or COSC3321.03
