The Real-Time Systems Laboratory is part of Computer Science at the University of Massachusetts. (You may also be interested in our sibling labs Real-Time Databases and Database Systems.

We are interested on areas related to Hard Real-Time Systems, whose proper operation depends not only on the correctness of the results but also their timeliness. Our areas of interest include architectural and operating system support for hard real-time systems, scheduling mechanisms for multi-tasking environments under dynamic conditions, and the composable design of adaptable software systems that integrate hard real-time with fault-tolerance, including issues relating to the design-time and run-time assurance of their correctness, timeliness, predicatibility and reliability properties.
