Besides requiring correct results, real-time applications (such as vehicle control and navigation) also demand the results be produced at the right time. Resource (e.g., computing and network fabrics) management allocates services to different tasks in the system to meet such timing requirements. I have worked on management techniques for both computing and networking resources under different types of timing specifications. My recent focus is on distributed approaches in wireless sensor and actuator networks. Below are some representative papers:
