Abstract : The applicability of objects architecture for designing real-time reactive operating systems is examined through a model of its elements, their relationships and operations. The requirements of creation, deletion and manipulation of objects in a distributed system with a high degree of fault tolerance are introduced and analyzed. Then, the imposition of time constraints is introduced, and its influence on the objects architecture is analyzed. Relationships with other objects and additional fault tolerance relations are considered. Finally, examples of some solutions to fundamental real-time problems are proposed. Keywords: Systems engineering; Embedding; Computer programming.
