RT-Cloud 2024 Keynote by Sysgo GmbH

Keynote: Safety-critical cloud applications

by Dr. George Violettas,
Deputy Director of Research and Technology Department,
SYSGO GmbH, Germany.

Abstract: In the rapidly evolving landscape of cloud/edge computing, real-time operating systems (RTOS), can offer robust, efficient, and secure solutions in several areas. Cloud computing provides scalable resources, yet it introduces latency and security concerns. On the other hand, Edge computing addresses latency and security by processing data closer to the source. However, it faces challenges concerning maintaining consistency, reliability, and connectivity across constrained, distributed, and potentially mobile nodes. RTOSs are critical for such a landscape since they balance resource limitations with high performance and security. Challenges include data integrity, complexity, and interoperability while satisfying safety/security standards. Addressing these issues is essential in domains like autonomous vehicles, industrial automation, and safety-critical infrastructure among others.
