The group involved in the project is the High-Performance Real-Time Laboratory (HiPeRT Lab), belonging to the Department of Physics, Computer Science and Math. The group is composed of ten full-time researchers active in the fields of distributed algorithms, scheduling, computational complexity, real-time and multiprocessor systems. It actively participated and coordinated different national and international research projects, publishing several papers in the major journals and conferences in the above cited fields. The group has been involved in several EU projects and has multiple on-going collaborations with key companies in automotive domains where real-time requirements are crucial.
