“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 analytical side.”
Timeframe: 2011 – 2014
“ARTEMIS project MBAT provides European industry with a new leading-edge V&V technology in form of a Reference Technology Platform (MBAT RTP) that will enable the production of high-quality and safe embedded systems at reduced cost in terms of time and money. This will be made possible by a new and very promising approach in which model-based testing technologies will be combined with static analysis techniques.”
The embedded safety-critical systems design and development industry is facing increasing complexity and a variety of systems and devices, coupled with growing regulatory constraints while costs, performance and time to market are constantly challenged. CESAR will bring significant and conclusive innovations in the two most improvable systems engineering disciplines:
-Requirement engineering in particular through formalization of multi viewpoint, multi criteria and multi level requirements,
-Component based engineering applied to design space exploration comprising multi-view, multicriteria and multi level architectural trade-offs.
