High-performance embedded systems require the execution of many applications on multicore platforms and are subject to stringent restrictions and constraints. The actors project approach provides temporal isolation through resource reservation over a multicore platform, adapting the available resources on the basis of the overall quality requirements. The architecture is fully operational on both ARM MPCore and x86 multicore platforms.
