Control-Quality Driven Design of Embedded Control Systems with Stability Guarantees

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Today, the majority of control applications in embedded systems, e.g., in the automotive domain, are implemented as software tasks on shared platforms. Ignoring implementation impacts during the design of embedded control systems results in complex timing behaviors that may lead to poor performance and, in the worst case, instability of control applications. This article presents a methodology for implementation-aware design of high-quality and stable embedded control systems on shared platforms with complex timing behaviors.
