An Introduction to Control and Scheduling Co-Design

Karl-Erik Årzén, Anton Cervin, Johan Eker, Lui Sha


The paper presents the emerging field of integrated control and CPU-time scheduling, where more general scheduling models and methods that better suit the needs of control systems are developed. This creates possibilities for dynamic and flexible integrated control and scheduling frameworks, where the control design methodology takes the availability of computing resources into account during design and allows on-line trade-offs between control performance and computing resource utilization.
