Can You Hear Me Now? The Art of Applying Communication Protocols When Architecting Real-Time Control Systems
Todd Farley, BAE Systems, Inc.
BAE Systems deals with architecting real-time control systems. These systems are usually complicated and distributed. Also, the lifetimes of projects are usually very long. So BAE must always answer this question: Which process should they adapt? The problems they face tend to fall into three categories:
- motion control systems (~robots)
- computation-intensive algorithms
- user interfaces
