Definitions Edit

A real-time system is

[a] computer and/or a software system that reacts to events before the events become obsolete. For example, airline collision avoidance systems must process radar input, detect a possible collision, and warn air traffic controllers or pilots while they still have tune to react.[1]
[a]n on-line computer that generates output nearly simultaneously with the corresponding inputs. Often, a computer system whose outputs follow by only a very short delay its inputs.[2]
