Real-time systems are those that can provide guaranteed worst-case response times to critical events, as well as acceptable average-case response times to noncritical events. When a real-time system is designed as an embedded component, it is called a real-time embedded system. Real-time embedded systems are widespread in consumer, industrial, medical, and military applications.

As more and more of our daily life depends on embedded technologies, the demand for engineers with the skill set for the development of real-time embedded software has soared in recent years. As a consequence, preparing ...
