Abstract

RTOS based embedded systems are designed with priority based multiple tasks. Inter task communication and data corruptions are major constraints in multi-tasking RTOS system. This study we describe about the solution for these issues with an example Real-time Liquid level control system. Message queue and Mail box are used to perform inter task communication to improve the task execution time and performance of the system. Critical section scheduling is used to eliminate the data corruption. In this application process value monitoring is considered as critical. In critical section the interrupt disable time is the most important specification of a real time kernel. RTOS is used to keep the interrupt disable time to a minimum. The algorithm is studied with respect to task execution time and response of the interrupts. The study also presents the comparative analysis of the system with critical section and without critical section based on the performance metrics.
