Determinism and predictability are two de facto critical and demanded requirements in real-time embedded systems. As applications increase their functionality and complexity, real-time operating systems (RTOSs) come into play, and due to the complexity of the systems itself, not always is possible to keep the commitment with these requirements. In this paper we present a hybrid hardware/software real-tim...
Sustainability is an important topic of discussion in our world. However, measuring sustainability and assessing behaviors is not always easy. Indeed, and in order to fulfill this goal, in this work it will be proposed a multi-agent based architecture to measure and assess sustainable indicators taken from a given environment. These evaluations will be based on past and present behaviors of the users ...
This paper identifies the main references, authors and journals influencing the sustainable development literature. The task is accomplished by means of a citation analysis based on the records of ISI Web of Science. We found that the core of sustainability thinking is framed by a pattern of landmark studies published around every 5 years. Only 380 publications have been cited at least ten times. Ref...
