DescriptionIntelligent mobile robots are critical in several scenarios. However, as their computational resources are limited, mobile robots struggle to handle several tasks concurrently and yet guaranteeing real-timeliness. To address this challenge and improve the real-timeliness of critical tasks under resource constraints, we propose a fast context-aware task handling technique. To effectively handling tasks in real-time, our proposed context-aware technique comprises of three main ingredients: (i) a dynamic time-sharing mechanism, coupled with (ii) an event-driven task scheduling using reactive programming paradigm to mindfully use the limited resources; and, (iii) a lightweight virtualized execution to easily integrate functionalities and their dependencies.
