Real-Time Systems: An Introduction and the State-of-the-Art

Real-Time Systems: An Introduction and the State-of-the-Art

Date: March 16, 2009
Creator: Kavi, Krishna M.; Akl, Robert G. & Hurson, Ali
Description: 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.

Modeling and Analysis Using Computational Tools

Modeling and Analysis Using Computational Tools

Date: 2007
Creator: Akl, Robert G. & Kavi, Krishna M.
Description: 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.

Hybrid Approach for Energy-Aware Synchronization

Hybrid Approach for Energy-Aware Synchronization

Date: December 2010
Creator: Akl, Robert G.; Saravanos, Yanos & Haidar, Mohamad
Description: 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.

Grid-based Coordinated Routing in Wireless Sensor Networks

Grid-based Coordinated Routing in Wireless Sensor Networks

Date: January 2007
Creator: Akl, Robert G. & Sawant, Uttara
Description: This paper discusses grid-based coordinated routing in wireless sensor networks and compares the energy available in the network over time for different grid sizes. The authors explore the quality of service of wireless sensor networks, how the coordinator nodes are elected, and the size of the grid area that will minimize the total energy consumption and extend the lifetime of the network.

Retention and Recruitment of Women in Computer Engineering

Retention and Recruitment of Women in Computer Engineering

Date: July 2006
Creator: Akl, Robert G. & Garlick, Ryan
Description: This paper describes the efforts and results of a plan for actively recruiting women students to undergraduate computer engineering programs at the University of North Texas (UNT). It also describes a series of activities aimed at improving retention rates of women students already in our programs. Such recruitment and retention of women is critical to the country's efforts to increase the number of engineering professionals, and is a priority for the Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) Department at UNT.
