About this Textbook

Embedded systems now include a very large proportion of the advanced products designed in the world, spanning transport (avionics, space, automotive, trains), electrical and electronic appliances (cameras, toys, televisions, home appliances, audio systems, and cellular phones), process control (energy production and distribution, factory automation and optimization), telecommunications (satellites, mobile phones and telecom networks), and security (e-commerce, smart cards), etc. The extensive and increasing use of embedded systems and their integration in everyday products marks a significant evolution in information science and technology. We expect that within a short timeframe embedded systems will be a part of nearly all equipment designed or manufactured in Europe, the USA, and Asia. There is now a strategic shift in emphasis for embedded systems designers: from simply achieving feasibility, to achieving optimality. Optimal design of embedded systems means targeting a given market segment at the lowest cost and delivery time possible. Optimality implies seamless integration with the physical and electronic environment while respecting real-world constraints such as hard deadlines, reliability, availability, robustness, power consumption, and cost. In our view, optimality can only be achieved through the emergence of embedded systems as a discipline in its own right.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book presents a roadmap aimed at ‘advancing the state of the art and structuring research on embedded systems in Europe.’ … The surveys of existing solutions for several important aspects, such as embedded operating systems, component models for embedded systems, and networks for distributed embedded systems, are another strong point. All in all, this book could be very useful for academics and researchers already working in the embedded systems domain, as a source of open problems for future research and references to existing techniques." (Sudeep Pasricha, Computing Reviews, April, 2006)
