Our lab, Embedded Real-TimeSystem Laboratory, or ERTL, is focusing on research about implementation technology of embedded realtime system, from either aspect of software development or hardware design, as well as from both of them being as a whole. Nowadays, embedded systems are often implemented within LSI(Large-scale, with highly advanced functionalities), and we are committing ourselves to the hardware design technology of system LSI.
There are also researches that actively corporates with the industrial world at our lab. Not only participating in all kinds of research activities with enterprises, we also promote TOPPERS project that develops all kinds of open source software for embedded systems, through the collaboration among industry, universities, and government. We are also making our own contributions on international standardisation, and committing ourselves to activities such as technology exchange conferences and hosting workshops. As a result, there are many application cases of our research at the industry, and case number is increasing. Students at our lab are also participating in these activities.
One of research achievements from ERTL is a high reliability RTOS for space domain.
TOPPERS/HRP Kernel — High reliability RTOS for spacecraft. Developed together with JAXA. Implemented within the H-IIB NO.3 rocket. Launched at July.21st, 2012.(Press Release)
Although our laboratory is currently working on the following research topics, we are not limited to them but we would like to broadly engage in research on embedded system technology.
To support the development of embedded systems,
Regarding the network for automobiles, IoT devices and spacecraft,
For the purpose of maintaining and improving security and security of Embedded/IoT systems,
Devices loaded with a large number of sensors and cameras such as automobiles and smartphones are getting overflowing in town, and data management infrastructure technology for efficiently integrating, searching and analyzing a large amount of information obtained therefrom
For the purpose of supporting embedded software development,
In the lab, we work in collaboration with numerous organizations and projects.

Most of students’ choose the work at companies that are related with embedded system. Refer to here for the list of companies that our students went to. Meanwhile, students who chose to continues their study as a doctoral students, became either college instructors or researchers at other companies.
