RTAI: Real-Time Application Interface

An introduction to RTAI for deterministic and preemptive real-time behaviour for Linux.
Future Developments

RTAI continues to grow and mature through the combined contributions of the DIAPM development team and those across the Internet who are encouraged by RTAI's flexible architecture, high performance and feature set. While this real-time Linux extension is very capable, stable and mature today, work is far from finished. The future holds many things, including:

  • VxWorks compatibility libraries

  • pSOS compatibility libraries

  • Enhanced development tools

  • Enhanced debug tools

  • Real-time Ethernet functionality
