Automotive, railway and avionics multicore systems


Despite increasing complexity in the mobility domains of automotive, avionics and rail, the technological basis for further increasing road safety, efficiency and comfort is to be created.

Project description

The ongoing revolution in the mobility domains (automotive, railways and avionic) that enables for the realization of greater safety, comfort, of improved transport efficiency and energy savings. Building up such systems will contain new technologies that are even more efficient. These future control units must perform more functions simultaneously.

Advanced features in the mobility domains require this high-performance computing technologies for complex processing or increased networking, as current technologies used in control devices runs up against its performance limit. Therefore, ARAMiS enables the use of these powerful multi-core platforms inside the mobility domains.

Project contribution

The transfer of solutions from domains that successfully use multi-core systems already is possible only to a limited extent. For their use in the mobility domains automobile, avionics and railway, multi-core systems must meet far-reaching and specific functional and non-functional requirements that go well beyond those of general purpose computing, such as real-time performance, reliability and availability, safety and security.

The contribution of fortiss is twofold: On the one hand, envisioned scenarios described in the survey carried out in the project agendaCPS are expanded and further detailed in such a way that the mobility domains are combined and cooperate in a single, cross-domain future scenario, which moreover is linked to the other, domain-specific scenarios devised by experts in the respective areas.

On the other hand, fortiss develops efficient and optimized system design methods using design-space exploration techniques. These methods enables to support the system designer in an early state of the system development, by choosing out of different variants and system configurations for identified functional and non-functional requirements.
