Safety critical real-time systems are implemented as sets of tasks that must meet deadlines. Real-time task scheduling strategies rely on the knowledge of the worst-case execution time (WCET) of each task. The research activities of the TRACES group aim to design new techniques with which to determine such WCETs and/or to facilitate their computation.
