2 PhD Positions: Scheduling Event-Triggered Control Tasks

Delft University of Technology

Position Type
Full Time
Organization Type

The SENTIENT project will develop efficient scheduling methods for networked control systems implemented in event-triggered form. The objective is to abstract the traffic of such control systems in the form of timed-automata. The resulting models will then be employed in the synthesis of schedulers. The research will require the use of interdisciplinary skills in the fields of control of hybrid systems, communication networks, and timed-automata theory. Two test-beds will be employed in the research, each assigned to one PhD:

• PhD1 will apply his/her research to a wireless control system of a (scaled-down) water distribution network.
• PhD2 will apply his/her research to a control bus in a real-time industrial automotive simulator.
