Hello UML people,
In case anyone is interested, I am currently starting an 8-month Master's
research project dealing with software emulation of real-time operating
I will be using RTAI Linux, an extention to the Linux kernel to achieve
Real-Time capabilities. (www.rtai.org)
In this research, I will be developing an RTAI emulator (Using User Mode
Linux). This emulator will exist for educational and developmental purposes.
The intent is to produce an open source RTOS emulator that can run on any Linux
box without kernel modification. This is due to the stugles that students have
when installing Linux, recompiling the kernel, and trying a RT Linux variant.
I hope to be able to give students a CD with the RTAI emulator, and a file
system for development, and that is all they need to try out a RTOS. In
addition, this will allow for multiple RTAI emulators to exist on a single
server, giving users access remote access to an RTAI environment for
If the work on the Windows port or User-Mode Linux continues to be successful,
the RTAI emulator will be runnable from the Windows environment as well.
In addition, the RTAI emulator will have full debug capabilities, allowing
users to debug kernel modules, or the kernel itself from the host system.
If you are intersted in following the progress, or reading my inital paper that
outlines my approach, go to:
