The aim of this handbook is to summarize the recent rapidly developed real-time computing technologies, from theories to applications. This handbook benefits the readers as a full and quick technical reference with a high-level historic review of technology, detailed technical descriptions and the latest practical applications. In general, the handbook is divided into three main parts (subjected to be modified): theory, design, and application covering different but not limited to the following topics:
- Real-time operating systems
- Real-time scheduling
- Timing analysis
- Programming languages and run-time systems
- Middleware systems
- Design and analysis tools
- Real-time aspects of wireless sensor networks
- Energy aware real-time methods
Professor Yu-Chu Tian is a Professor of Computer Science and the Head of the NetCom Discipline within the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) at Queensland University of Technology (QUT). He is an Australia Research Council CoE recognized Expert of International Standing, and an Assessor for research grant applications and research quality evaluation for ARC and several other funding agencies and organizations. He is a member of IEEE, IEAust, and IChemE. As an Associate Editor, he is serving the journal of Information Sciences published by Elsevier and Asia-Pacific Journal of Chemical Engineering published by Wiley. He is an ACM Reviewer for Computing Reviews. He is also acting as a Reviewer for a number of international journals. He is a technology provider to several Australian companies for complex systems engineering, real-time/embedded systems, and intelligent systems and robotics. Dr Tian is currently supervising 9 PhD/Masters students and several postdoc/visiting research fellows.
Professor Tian received the B.E. degree in Electrical Engineering (industrial automation) from Wuhan Institute of Technology, China, in 1982, the M.E. degree in Electrical Engineering (industrial automation/systems engineering) from East China University of Science and Technology, China, in 1987, the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering (Industrial Automation/Intelligent Control and Decision) from Zhejiang University, China, in 1993, and the Ph.D. degree in Computer and Software Engineering from The University of Sydney, Australia, in 2009.
Professor Tian joined the Naval Academy of Engineering, China, in 1987, as a Lecturer in systems engineering. From 1994 to 1998, he worked at the Department of Electrical Engineering and the Institute of Industrial Process Control, Zhejiang University, China, where he was promoted to Associate Professor in Electrical Engineering in 1995. From 1996 to 1998, he was on leave from Zhejiang University to Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, as a Research Associate working on complex systems and process control. He moved to Australia in 1998, working as a Research Fellow at Curtin University of Technology. In 1999, he was elected as one of the four Western Australia Strategic Research Fellows. Since 2002, he has been working at Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia, initially as a Lecturer, later as a Senior Lecturer, the Networking Teaching Group Leader and Associate Professor in Computer Science, and currently as a Professor of Computer Science and the Head of the Discipline of Networks and Communications (NetCom). He also worked as a visiting professor in 2007 at the Department of Computer Science, The University of Maryland at College Park, USA.
Professor Tian received the prestigious Outstanding Young Researcher Award from Zhejiang Province in 1995 while working at Zhejiang University. He also won the Western Australia State Government Strategic Research Fellowship in 1999.
As the Chief Investigator, Professor Tian has won/completed 20 research grants/projects, including 3 funded by Australian Research Council (ARC), 2 funded by Australian Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) and 1 funded by Australian Government Department of Education, Science and Training (DEST). He holds a patent on real-time control of large-scale and continuous galvanizing line. He has credited over 150 refereed papers in his publication record, including over 60 indexed by SCI, and over 70 indexed by EI. His publications have been cited over 1400 times in Google Scholar Citations, and the h-index of his publications has reached 21.
