The IRMOS (Interactive Real-Time
Multimedia Applications on Service-Oriented Infrastructures) FP7
European Project aims to enable "Real-time" interaction between people
and applications over a Service Oriented Infrastructure, where
processing, storage and networking needs to be combined and delivered
with guaranteed levels of service. The AQuoSA architecture has been
used often for the experimental validation of the research activities
performed within the project. Also, there is a plan for integrating
into AQuoSA the new hierarchical EDF/FP
real-time scheduler developed within IRMOS.
AQuoSA may be used as CPU Resource Manager within the FRSH-FORB middleware implementing
the FRESCOR API for real-time scheduling on the Linux OS.
The FRESCOR European Project
Development of some of the AQuoSA components is being partially supported
by the FRESCOR European project
(Framework for Real-time Embedded Systems based on COntRacts).
The OCERA Project
The base resource reservation module was initially developed
inside the OCERA European
project (Open Components for Embedded Real-time Applications).
The RETIS Laboratory
at Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna
The AQuoSA project constitutes an essential testbed for experimenting
with results of the research made by the Real Time System Laboratory of Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna (Pisa, Italy) in the field of Quality
of Service control in soft real-time systems.
The ICT Department of University of Trento (Trento, Italy), is
actively contributing to the project, by both using AQuoSA for
educational purposes, and by providing additional software components
at the application level. Also, a joint research area with RETIS at
Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna aims at continuously experimenting with the
latest and newest in-kernel scheduling-related mechanisms, so to keep
the AQuoSA core components up to date with the maximum potentiality of
the latest Linux kernel and available patches.
