Who are we?

The High-Performance Real-Time Laboratory (HiPeRT Lab) is a research group belonging to the University of Modena specialized in the development of algorithmic and software solutions for high-performance real-time systems, with particular relation to next-generation multi-/many-core architectures. HiPeRT Lab's mission is to predictably exploit the tremendous performance/power potential offered by parallel computing platforms in application domains where timing constraints are crucial. To achieve this goal, the group acquired a strong experience in all the aspects of the technological software stack: from low-level communication/synchronization support for parallel applications, to scheduling algorithms and schedulability analysis; from Real-Time Operating Systems (RTOS) to efficient compilers and predictable runtimes. The group has been involved in several EU project and has multiple on-going collaborations with key companies in industrial domains where real-time requirements are crucial: automotive, avionics, industrial automation, but also semantic intelligence and on-line advertising. It strongly believes in the technology transfer between academia and industry, fostering and promoting new collaborations for improving and devising the real-time systems of the future.

What do we do


Avionics systems were probably the greatest achievement of 19th century. After more than 100 years, they made the world smaller, and even let us get to the moon. With the help of state-of-the-art techniques for design and analysis, we will be able to build safer, smarter and (why not?) cheaper planes and spacecrafts.


Next-generation robotic systems will merge workload-intensive AI functionalities with real-time actuation tasks to provide vision-based control loops for fast and precise motion and control. HiPeRT Lab can provide the required system and software stack to enable achieving predictable performance on top of next-generation embedded platforms for advanced robotic applications.


Automation or automatic control saves labor, but also energy and materials and improves quality, accuracy and precision of machinery, processes in factories, boilers and heat treating ovens, switching in telephone networks, steering and stabilization of ships, aircraft and other applications with minimal or reduced human intervention.


Automotive systems today are a vital part of life all over the world, either by helping to produce, harvest and move food to distribution centers, by moving workers into the economic machine, or simply improving the quality of life by extending the range of movement of populations.
