OpenComRTOS: An Ultra-Small Network Centric Embedded RTOS Designed Using Formal Modeling
Abstract. OpenComRTOS is one of the few Real-Time Operating Systems (RTOS) for embedded systems that was developed using formal modeling techniques. The goal was to obtain a proven trustworthy component with a clean and high performance architecture useable on a wide range of networked embedded systems. The result is a scalable communication system with real-time capabilities. Besides a rigorous formal verification of the kernel algorithms, the resulting architecture has several properties that enhance the safety and real-time properties of the RTOS. The code size in particular is very small and typically 10 times less than a typical equivalent single processor RTOS. 1 Problem Statement Following a market research study for the European Space Agency in 2004, it was discovered that the majority of the RTOS (Real-Time Operating Systems) on the commercial as well as on open source market, cannot be verified or even certified, e.g. according to the DoD 178B or IEC61508 standards.
