We are surrounded by Machine Control System such as Car which consists of many small sensors, microcontrollers and actuators. In this realm, application usually runs on special OS for embedded system or without any OS. For embedded system, size of all software running on microcontroller should be small. Furthermore, application should be realtime: low latency and low jitter.
Today, Linux looks good for Machine Control System because of uClinux and PREEMPT_RT patch. uClinux stands for MicroController Linux. Originally, Linux is developed for x86 which has MMU. However uClinux is running on microcontroller without MMU. PREEMPT_RT is patchset for achieving Real-Time with Linux.
In this presentation, Yoshihiro will talk about advantage to use Linux for Machine Control System; experience and issue while he has tried to use combination of uClinux and PREEMPT_RT patch.
