Designing Bandwidth-Efficient Stabilizing Control Servers

Abstract
Guaranteeing stability of control applications in

embedded systems, or cyber-physical systems, is perhaps the

alpha and omega of implementing such applications. However,

as opposed to the classical real-time systems where often the

acceptance criterion is meeting the deadline, control applications do not primarily enforce hard deadlines. In the case

of control applications, stability is considered to be the main

design criterion and can be expressed in terms of the amount

of delay and jitter a control application can tolerate before

instability. Therefore, new design and analysis techniques are

required for embedded control systems.

of control applications, stability is considered to be the main

of delay and jitter a control application can tolerate before

instability. Therefore, new design and analysis techniques are

required for embedded control systems.

In this paper, the analysis and design of such systems

considering server-based resource reservation mechanism are

addressed. The benefits of employing servers are manifold: (1)

providing a compositional framework, (2) protection against

other tasks misbehaviors, and (3) systematic bandwidth assignment. We propose a methodology for designing bandwidth-efficient servers to stabilize control tasks. (Less)
