Laboratory for Next Generation Real-Time Computing
University of Virginia

The Laboratory for Next Generation Real-Time Computing is part of the Computer Science Department at the University of Virginia. This research laboratory studies a wide range of issues in all aspects of real-time computing. Real-time principles are becoming important for all systems since audio and video streams are being utilized in many new contexts from control applications to the Next Generation Internet. We have exciting new projects on building and analyzing embedded systems based on components, on developing a theory and practice of feedback control real-time scheduling, on developing protocols for deeply embedded large scale sensor networks, and designing real-time databases to support smart/ubiquitous computing spaces in both Internet based worlds and in ad hoc sensor networks.
