Research in Hierarchical Real-Time Scheduling (HiRTS) University of Houston

August 2017 – Now Houston, TX

• The first-ever to design a fault-tolerance mechanism for Virtual Machine

(VM) scheduling (HiRTS-RRP model) in a Virtualized Real-Time Operaঞng System. Link to Paper: IEEE Xplore

• First-ever to study the problem of efficiently mapping real-ঞme tasks from task level to virtual machines at resource-level in HiRTS-RRP model.

• The first-ever to design and implement single-core and mulঞ-core VM schedulers based on HiRTS-RRP model in Xen & XtratuM hypervisors. Also, developed several APIs and Xen hypercalls to implement efficient message passing mechanisms .

• HiRTS-RRP VM schedulers could achieve minimum latency, maximum throughput and also show be er hard and so[ real-ঞme performance than contemporary Xen and XtratuM schedulers. Project Webpage: Link Research in Real-Time Traffic Rouঞng

University of Houston

October 2019 – Ongoing Houston, TX

• This project aims at minimizing the average travel ঞme of all vehicles in a given network with respect to their individual travel deadlines to improve overall traffic throughput.

• This project offers a test bed based on Simulaঞon of Urban MObility

(SUMO) that can evaluate the performance of a traffic rouঞng policy based on the average travel ঞme of all vehicle agents in a given traffic grid.

• A ”Selfless” Traffic Rouঞng model (STR) is proposed that mostly focuses on reducing the travel ঞmes of all vehicles in a given grid. A value-based reinforcement learning strategy is used to achieve the benefits of an STP model. work-in-progress publicaঞon: IEEE Xplore
