Technical role(s) within ArtistDesign

  • QoS-oriented scheduling and management of communication and processing elements in embedded platforms, including energy-aware solutions.
  • Resource management and real-time communication in distributed embedded systems, with particular reference to networked embedded systems used in factory communication and in automotive environments.
  • Real-time communication over wireless networks: modeling, timing analysis, transmission scheduling, topology management, coexistence assessments, to support soft real-time traffic over IEEE 802.11, 802.15.4 and Bluetooth networks.
  • Adaptivity and design issues of protocols for wireless sensor networks and networked embedded systems.
  • Support for the SHaRK kernel maintenance.
  • Stochastic analysis of soft real-time tasks in the context of priority-driven soft real-time systems.
