Real-Time Systems at the University of Maryland

Real-Time Systems: Real-time computing systems play a leading role in many contemporary applications. From nuclear reactors to animation software, from medical imaging systems to automobiles, you will usually find real-time software controlling the time-dependent operations. A fault in such an application may be life-threatening (e.g., in a reactor controller or auto-pilot system), highly expensive (e.g., in a manufacturing plant), or merely irritating (e.g, in a teleconferencing session or video game).

Real-Time Systems at College Park: Real-time computing forms a cornerstone of our systems and software research at the University of Maryland, and we are pursuing projects in a variety of inter-related areas: Design, specification, analysis, programming languages, scheduling technologies, operating systems, networking, multi-media and artificial intelligence.
