Future mobility solutions will increasingly rely on smart components that continuously monitor the environment and assume more and more responsibility for a convenient, safe and reliable operation.
Currently the single most important roadblock for this market is the ability to come up with an affordable, safe multi-core development methodology that allows industry to deliver trustworthy new functions at competitive prices. ASSUME will provide a seamless engineering methodology, which addresses this roadblock on the constructive and analytic side.
The POLCA project (Programming Large Scale Heterogeneous Infrastructure) intends to make complex parallel systems programmable. To help the programmer to fully exploit the specifics of the destination environment and to integrate multiple instances into a single system, POLCA will realise a programming model and development tool-chain.
In other words, the POLCA model will allow development of distributed applications over a wide range of processor types. This will prepare for the next generation of applications that have to deal with a large scale and scope of processors to compensate for lack of performance.
BENEFIC (Best ENergy EFficiency solutions for heterogeneous multI-core Communicating systems) is a cross-industry research & development project consisting of 25 organizations including industrial, SME and university partners from France, the Netherlands, and Portugal.
The BENEFIC project is a CATRENE funded project.
The ARGO (WCET-Aware Parallelization of Model-Based Applications for Heterogeneous Parallel Systems) research project will make programming of time-critical embedded applications on heterogeneous multi- and many-core architectures easier. ARGO plans to combine automatic, tool-based parallelization with user-guided parallelization to reduce the need for in-depth expertise.
The ARGO approach will proven on applications from aerospace and industrial automation.
In European Union's Horizon 2020 Research & Innovation Action IMMORTAL (Integrated Modelling, Fault Management, Verification and Reliable Design Environment for Cyber-Physical Systems) a consortium of leading European academic and industrial players aim at combining their expertise in developing an integrated, cross-layer modeling based tool framework for fault management, verification and reliable design of dependable Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS).
