The fulfillment of non-functional requirements like timing or energy consumption is of utmost
importance in many embedded systems and respective applications. Especially, with the introduc-
tion of multi-core architectures, the ability to predict non-functional execution qualities becomes
more and more difficult, as multiple concurrent application programs may interfere in execution
when typcially sharing all the resources. In this paper, we advocate a novel parallel computing
paradigm called invasive computing that allows to isolate application programs on multi-core
targets. For a presented case study of a cyber-physical real-time control system, we show that
invasive computing enables composability that in fact allows to characterize and analyze each ap-
plication program statically and independent from each other. More specifically, it is shown that a
distributed object detection algorithm for controlling an inverted pendulum and implemented on
a heterogeneous invasive multi-processor SoC (MPSoC) is able to provide real-time guarantees
as well as reliability requirements on demand.
