Development of RTOS applications on Vxworks and 8051 Microcontrollers

a. Implementation of OSPF (Open Shortest Path First) protocol (Ipv4)

        My role: Design and development of Hello message packet across the Local Area
        Network.
        Description: This is the first packet that is sent across the network to discover or maintain
        the neighbors on the network at frequent intervals of time. Once the neighbors are found
        then it is written /updated to the routing table. In our case it was written to the text file.

Environment: Vxworks 5.4(RTOS), Tornado II used for development (target Intel PC) and Coding
in C++

b. Implementation of doubly linked list as a Shared Data Structure

        My role: Design and development of the various operations on the doubly linked list as a
        part of Shared Data Structure.
        Description: The doubly linked list was maintained as shared data structure in the
        operating system. Hence the access to such structure has to be mutually exclusive for
        each of the tasks that access it. Each of the operations on this like addition, deletion and
        modification to the nodes of the doubly linked list were made mutually exclusive to the
        tasks that access it.

in C++

c. Implementation of Round Robin scheduling algorithm

        My role: Design and development of the Round Robin Scheduling algorithm for 4 tasks.
        Description: Scheduling the tasks as per Round Robin Scheduling algorithm. Timer was
        maintained to switch between the various tasks and once the task is completed the task
        was ended. 4 tasks were scheduled using the 4 register banks of 8051 microcontroller.

Environment: 8-bit 8051 Microcontroller, KEIL was used for development (Cross Compiler) and
Coding in assembly

d. Implementation of Data Transfer using CAN

        My role: Development of the data sends and receive across the network using CAN.
        Description: CAN - Controller Area Network is a high-speed data transfer serial device.
