The RTDOC group at the Univeristy of Rhode Island performs research and development of real-time distributed object computing technology. Real-time applications have timing constraints, such as deadlines and/or periods of execution. Examples of distributed real-time systems include military command and control applications, manufacturing control, sensor networks, and telecommunication. We express, enforce, and analyze real-time requirements, by using, adapting, and extending, classic real-time scheduling algorithms, mechanisms, and approaches in the distributed object paradigm.
