Real-Time Communication

Real-time applications are increasingly being implemented on distributed platforms and there are several reasons for their popularity. One important reason is that it is often cost-effective to have a distributed solution using many pieces of cheap hardware, rather than having a centralized, sophisticated, and costly machine. Further, many real-time applications are inherently distributed with different data sources (e.g., sensors) and data receivers (e.g., actuators) of a system placed at geographically separate locations. A distributed implementation in such a situation makes good design sense. Another point going in favour of distributed implementations is fault-tolerance which is very important for safety-critical ...
