This book has been designed for undergraduate and postgraduate students to meet the course on real-time operating systems and real-time embedded systems. Its practical approach to solving real-time problems also makes it an excellent choice for researchers, professionals and practitioners. This book is a comprehensive text for the design of hard real-time embedded systems. It offers a splendid example for the balanced, integrated treatment of systems and software engineering, helping readers tackle the hardest problems of advanced real-time applications in embedded systems such as data processing, automotive industry, healthcare, household appliance controllers, medical monitoring equipments, and consumer electronics.

The author presents this book in a very lucid style and makes complex concepts and processes easy to follow and understand even for average student. The text in the book is illustrated with appropriate diagrams, worked-out problems, and case studies. Written in a student-friendly manner, the book is enriched with the following features:

  • Logical sequence of chapterisation - Real-time Systems, Real-time Operating System, Fault Tolerance, and Case studies
  • Covers the theoretical, practical and applied aspects of Real-time Operating Systems.
  • Elaborate discussion of each chapter.
  • Cross-fertilization of ideas and concepts between the academic and industrial worlds that led to the inclusion of many insightful examples from industry to explain the fundamental scientific concepts in a real-world.
