Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


This paper demonstrates the application of a model-based
coupling approach to cope with non negligible coupling
imperfections and faults of interconnected real-time systems.
Performance degradation of the coupled overall system is
prevented via model-based prediction schemes, which
compensate for effects caused by e.g. deadline violations of the
coupled real-time systems or data losses and transmission time
delays due to the communication network. As an example, the
real-time co-simulation setup of a modular driving simulator
demonstrates the practical applicability and effectiveness of the
proposed coupling approach.
