Dependable Embedded Components and Systems

Objective

Dependable embedded real-time systems constitute a fundamental enabling technology for the information society. As our reliance on embedded systems, for safety/service critical as well as commodity applications, is continually growing, their economic impact reaches far beyond their immediate market size. For the next generation of dependable embedded real-time systems, the rapidly growing system requirements also result in enormous increases of system complexity, necessitating reuse of pre-validated hardware and software components and functional blocks for both design and certification purposes. Thus, the major objective of the DECOS project is to research the compositional system framework and to develop a set of generic hardware and software components usable on various platforms including the Time-Triggered Architecture.

The integrated project DECOS will develop the basic enabling technology to move from a federated distributed architecture to an integrated distributed architecture in order to reduce development, validation and maintenance costs, and increase the dependability of embedded applications in various application domains. DECOS plans to develop technology invariant software interfaces and encapsulated virtual networks with predictable temporal properties such that application software can be transferred to a new hardware and communication base with minimal effort (legacy reuse). DECOS methodology and tools will be evaluated over the domains of automotive, aerospace and control applications.

DECOS builds upon the foundations established in previous European research projects (e.g. NextTTA, FIT, TTA, SETTA, RISE, X-By-Wire). The components and tools developed within DECOS will cover: cluster design, middleware and code generators, validation and certification as well as systems-on-a-chip (SoCs) for high dependability applications.
