Design and implementation of a network communication scheme with bounded delays adequate to the PtidyOS
by Miguel Palomera for Ptolemy Project, University of California, Berkeley
PtidyOS requires that the communications amount the nodes are by transmitting time-stamped events with known bounded delays. This project proposes the design and implementation of a network communication scheme that guarantee such behavior. Initially two alternatives are considered: avoid the IP stack in order to build a predictable access to the network based on FTT-Ethernet (or a simple TDMA scheme); implement a middleware, like ORTE, able to management real-time constrains.
