Welcome to the Real-Time and Embedded Systems (RTES) Laboratory’s homepage.

RTES was founded in 2007 by Prof. Taehyoun Kim and three passionate students whose love embedded systems. And now, we are a leading research group of EtherCAT-based industrial automation in Korea. Since 2009, we have been conducting academic/practical researches on the construction of an open framework for networked motion control system development and validation in a holistic way. Our research topics include open-source based IEC 61131-3 compliant IDE for PLC applications, PC-and ARM-based real-time motion controller platform, formal verification of industrial automation systems, design and test procedure automation for motion applications.

Our research area includes as follows:

    • Open source based IDE and motion control platform.
      • IEC 61131-3 standard compliant IDE for PLC applications.
      • PC-and ARM-based real-time motion controller platform performance tuning, evaluation, and optimization.
      • Design and test procedure automation for motion applications.
    • Real-time and Embedded Systems.
      • System modeling and Formal verification.
      • Performance evaluation and analysis.
      • System security analysis on mobile platforms (iOS, Android).
      • Development of an application for mobile wireless networks (WiBro/WiMAX).
