There are operating systems for all kind of purposes.
In the field of automation, real-time operation systems have to deal with time limits for measuring and control.
If safety and availability are important, microkernel operating systems can be preferred.
We examine how current operating systems work on various hardware platforms.
Timing behaviour and means of synchronisation of internal processes are of special interest for us
as well as the interoperability with external systems.
Another interesting point is the portability of operating systems regarding(concerning) hardware and software.
Reliability ,security and error handling is also being covered in our research activities.
Current Research Topics:
Timing and Synchronisation Mechanisms in OSEKtime
Bluetooth with Embedded Linux
Process Scheduling Techniques
