Energy Autonomy of Real-Time Systems addresses foundations and findings in real-time scheduling and processor activity management for energy harvesting embedded systems, serving as a textbook for courses on the topic in master programs, and as a reference for computer scientists and engineers involved in the design or development of autonomous cyber-physical systems which require up-to-date solutions.

Key Features

  • Develops theoretical models for energy-harvesting real-time systems, including theorems and schedulability analysis
  • Contains scheduling algorithms that are rigorously derived from the theory, based on both real-time and energy constraints
  • Covers future, potential applications centered on the use of self-powered sensor technologies
  • Provides the methodology for developing autonomous real-time systems based on energy harvesting


All practitioners (engineers) who have some industrial experience with embedded devices and wish to gain knowledge of energy harvesting real-time systems. Graduate students, teachers and researchers in a wide range of disciplines impacted by real-time computing and green energy management
