The world’s first Full-System Simulation tool to revolutionize software programming in autonomous driving, aviation, embedded vision and further highly innovative applications

Descripción del proyecto

Una vía revolucionaria de programación de software

Las tecnologías inteligentes como la realidad aumentada o los drones son cada vez más comunes. Los modelos de software existentes no bastan para seguir el ritmo de las tecnologías inteligentes como los automóviles autónomos. Para resolver este problema, el proyecto financiado con fondos europeos FuSy ofrece una herramienta de programación denominada SLX. Esta herramienta de desarrollo multinúcleo ofrece información sobre ejecución de software en interdependencias entre hardware y software con la que refactorizar y arquitecturizar el código a fin de generar un aprovechamiento óptimo de todos los motores de aceleración utilizados en sistemas multinúcleo. Se actualizará y adaptará en un primer momento para la industria de la automoción y en un segundo término para la visión integrada, la aviación y la defensa.

Objetivo

Intelligent technologies such as autonomous cars, augmented reality or drones will soon become an integral part of our everyday lives and revolutionize many areas of our economy and industry. However, the technology community currently working on the development of these products is facing a substantial problem: the dramatic gap between hardware and software development. While the necessary, highly-performant hardware - in particular multicore processors (a processor with several cores) - is currently available to design these new technologies, an important hurdle persists in programming the software to be run on hardware platforms with increasingly numerous, complex and heterogeneous components. Since no tool exists that simulates the whole functioning of such platforms, users have no insight in advance of the processors’ utilization, which often leads to a system overload and instability. Currently, users must rely on e.g. laborious manual methods or unrealistic model-based tools. The FuSy project offers the solution: SLX, the first programming tool with full-system simulation function, which gives, in an automated process, unprecedented system insights into the behavior of multiple applications running simultaneously on complex hardware platforms. SLX allows to optimally use the existing hardware and computing power and automates tasks that take months with state-of-the-art methods into a few hours. SLX was introduced as a tool suite by company Silexica in 2015 in the wireless baseband and 5G industries. Now, within the FuSy project, it must be upgraded into a full-system simulation tool and its automotive application adapted. Silexica plans a step-by-step introduction into its target markets of automotive, embedded vision and aviation and defense - a TAM currently estimated at €810bn. With help of the SME funding, Silexica expects to reach, mainly via licenses sales, a turnover of €36.3M (of it €34.9M with FuSy) and a staff count of 210 employees by 2024.
