Abstract: In this paper we describe some aspects of the work that was developed in the context of the HIDENETS European project, concerning the implementation of a real-time subsystem that is part of the adopted hybrid system architecture. This subsystem is responsible for ensuring the necessary predictability, which is required to implement safety-critical control applications. It provides a generic timing failure detection service and is able to execute a predefined safety task. We describe the architecture of this real-time executive and we point out some of the solutions that were employed to ensure a timely and predictable behavior, using the resources provided by the selected COTS hardware and development environment.
