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.
