​Title: Scheduling over wireless for real-time monitoring and control
Maben Rabi, School of Information Technology, Halmstad University

Examples of wirelessly networked real-time systems are: (1) a chemical factory where field buses have been replaced with a wireless LAN, and, (2) a connected, intelligent transportation system in which vehicles communicate wirelessly to nearby vehicles and the traffic infrastructure. In all such examples, design is challenging because the "physical" part, and the "cyber" part operate at nearly the same time scales. For example, the braking time in a platoon may be of the same order of magnitude as the typical duration of radio channel fading.Therefore, the "physical" and the "cyber" parts have to be designed together.
This talk shall focus on relatively simple problems on scheduling messages from sensors. In these problems, the chief issues are: (a) limits on network throughput, and (b) random loss of some of the data packets. We visit both elementary theoretical ideas, and an application to connected and automated vehicular traffic.
