How to cope with timing uncertainties in critical high-performance systems
Autonomous mobile systems in automotive, avionics or robotics applications combine high performance requirements with safety criticality. High performance HW/SW architectures, however, expose a far more complex runtime behavior than traditional microcontroller architectures. They challenge traditional worst-case design that assumes formally analyzable or at least tightly bounded deterministic worst-response times.
This mini-keynote consists of an update of solutions that we discussed in last year’s talk, their adoption by automotive standards and feedback from industrial development, as well as a new solution that exploits memory hierarchy for improved worst-case behavior.
Dr. Rolf Ernst is a professor at the Technische Universität Braunschweig, Germany. He received a BSc, MSc in CS and a Ph.D. in EE from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg. After 2 years at Bell Labs in Allentown, PA, he joined the TU Braunschweig where he chairs the Institute of Computer and Network Engineering (IDA). His interests cover aspects of design and architecture of embedded and cyber-physical systems, with a focus on real-time and safety-critical systems. He has and had research contracts with automotive, avionics, and semiconductor companies throughout the world. He and his team have been active in the AUTOSAR standardization, the world standard for automotive software. He is an IEEE Fellow and a member of the German Academy of Science and Engineering, acatech. He received the EDAA Achievement Award 2014.
