Warping - Wait and lock free synchronisation mechanisms



Start date:


Our aim in this project is to study and apply the lock/wait-free methods (each one where appropriately suited) to derive new protocols and algorithms for real-time systems and show how they can improve the system behavior, compared with lock-based methods. An important area that we plan to explore is on real-time operating system kernels, in particular wait/lock-free implementations of shared data structures.
