Experimental evaluation of slack management in real-time control systems: Coordinated vs. self-triggered approach
Effective slack management, i.e. management of unused computing resources, for real-time control tasks mandates to redistribute the available resources between controllers as a f...

Q-Learning in Continuous State and Action Spaces
Abstract. Q-learning can be used to learn a control policy that maximises a scalar reward through interaction with the environment. Qlearning is commonly applied to problems with d...

Improving Quality-of-Control Using Flexible Timing Constraints: Metric and Scheduling Issues
Closed-loop control systems are dynamic systems subject to perturbations. One of the main concerns of the control is to design controllers to correct or limit the deviation that t...

Optimal on-line (m, k)-firm constraint assignment for real-time control tasks based on plant state information
1 In this paper, we study the problem of scheduling a set of control tasks. We distinguish three different situations of states of controlled plants: not activated, steady state si...
