Hybrid Approach for Energy-Aware Synchronization
This book chapter discusses a time synchronization scheme for wireless sensor networks that aims to save sensor battery power while maintaining network connectivity for as long as possible. It focuses on aspects of wireless sensor networks. These include designing a hybrid method between reference broadcast synchronization (RBS) and timing-sync protocol for sensor networks (TPSN) to reduce the number of transmissions required to synchronize an entire network, extending single-hop synchronization methods to operate in large multi-hop networks, verifying that the hybrid methods operate as desired by simulating against RBS and TPSN, and maintaining network connectivity and coverage.
Modeling and Analysis Using Computational Tools
This book chapter presents two special algorithms, Mean Value Analysis and Convolution Algorithm, for the analysis of closed queuing networks, and an introduction to simulation techniques that are widely used in analyzing queuing systems in general. In the illustration of special algorithms, the authors use simplifying assumptions that also show how they provide practical solutions to systems that are interactable or when their behaviors cannot be easily modeled using simple probability distributions.
Real-Time Systems: An Introduction and the State-of-the-Art
This encyclopedia article gives an overview of the broad area of real-time systems. This task is daunting because real-time systems are everywhere, and yet no generally accepted definition differentiates real-time systems from non-real-time systems. The authors make an attempt at providing a general overview of the different classes of real-time systems, scheduling of tasks (or threads) in such systems, design tools and environments for real-time systems, real-time operating systems, and embedded systems. The authors conclude their discussion with research challenges that still remain.
