Abstract

Our society depend on embedded and ubiquitous computing and the reliability of embedded software becomes more and more important. We have conducted a five years project with industries to develop software for realizing highly reliable embedded systems. We have tackled reliability issues from the following aspects. 1)Design environment: we have developed a UML design verification tool that apply model checking techniques to improve the design quality of application software. 2)Operating environment: we have developed operating system supports that realize multiple execution of real-time operating systems and also developed operating systems with enhanced resource management. Both technologies contribute the realization of robust run-time environment. 3) Real-time environment: we have developed real-time garbage collection techniques for Jave. They prevent the suspension of applications that violates the correct behavior of real-time applications. Also, they reduce the effort of application programmers to avoid garbage-collection during important execution timing. We have obtained fruitful results from these three research themes, and some of them are actually used in industries. Furthermore, we have integrated the results to make syner-getic effect of them. In order to demonstrate the effectiveness, we have conduct an experiment. In this paper, we introduce the project and its results.
