Abstract: Nowadays, various transportation means use Linux as the operating system for their embedded control systems; however Linux uses all the processes in the hardware equally. This motivates some designer to develop an entire new operating system for the vehicle, where a modification of Linux can produce the same and even a better product. This paper explains how this modification was designed and implemented in a commercial transportation company.

Keywords: intelligent transport systems; ITS; embedded systems; Linux; real time operating systems; offline scheduling; embedded control; vehicle control; vehicle communications; vehicular operating systems; vehicle autonomous systems.
