The objective of this Special Issue is the design, development, and implementation of real-time systems for emerging IoT and industrial IoT-embedded systems and their applications. Research on real-time control of time-sensitive systems has attracted great interest in recent years due to the increasing utilization of embedded control systems in the IoT and cloud. Embedded systems have made possible the realization of highly-effective controllers in many domains (smart manufacturing, smart home, smart autonomous vehicles, smart mobile devices, UAVs, etc.). The increase in implementations of such applications and their special timing requirements, in particular, for safety-critical systems, brings new challenges and issues in real-time systems. There is a need to research and propose novel efficient solutions. Therefore, we focus on real-time systems issues (e.g., efficiency, reliability, timely response, energy consumption, cost) from an architectural point of view, as well as from an operating systems perspective (e.g., real-time operating systems). There will be special emphasis on new designs and developments and their applications in various sectors (healthcare, manufacturing, industrial IoT, cloud systems, automotive, aerospace, etc.).
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Real-time systems and applications performance issues
- Real-time system architectures and real-time operating systems
- Real-time systems and application studies in various environments (e.g., manufacturing, IoT, cloud and edge computing, control systems, mechatronics and robotics, healthcare services)
- Emerging and future real-time systems.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Computers is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
