- What is DROPS?
- The Dresden Real-Time Operating Systems Project
is a research project aiming at the support of applications with
Quality of Service requirements.
Although much research has been done on networking support for
continuous-media applications, very few projects tackle related
operating system issues, such as scheduling and file system support
for bounded response time. The DROPS project attempts to find design
techniques for the construction of distributed real time operating
systems whose every component guarantees a certain level of service to
A key component is L4Linux,
the Linux server on top of the L4
microkernel; it services standard Linux applications. In addition,
separate real time components - designed from scratch - provide
deterministic service to real time applications.
The project is supported by DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, SFB
