Thesis Summary:

Real-time systems (RT) are present in our day-to-day life throughout numerous domains. These systems involve a real-time response due to the direct interaction with the environment but also efficient resource management. A concept which presents high interest in classical real-time systems is to combine several critical functionalities onto the same platform. This has led to the development of a new class of systems: mixed criticality systems (MCSs). The MCS concept basically refers to “an embedded computing platform in which application functions of different criticality share computation and/or communication resources” [1]. Many real-time critical applications have already been implemented using distributed architectures [2].These architectures contain a collection of independent components, that run on multiple processing units and communicate with each other through a network [3].
