Introduction to RTEMS

Introduction to RTEMS: A Real-Time OS for Embedded Applications

This session gives an overview over the RTEMS project, its distinct features, goals, typical applications and current capabilities. It sketches general requirements for real-time applications, basic RTEMS features, the structural differences between a Linux based and an RTEMS based application, available APIs, available subsystems and the driver models.

The goal of this session is to emphasis the distinct requirements addressed in RTEMS compared to UNIX-like Operating Systems. This should be a good base for further discussions on collaboration with other projects.
