PaPP

Portable and Predictable Performance on Heterogeneous Embedded Manycores

Today's products use embedded computing systems with exacting requirements on execution speed, timeliness, and power consumption. It is a grand challenge to guarantee these requirements across product families and in the face of rapid technological evolution, as current development practices cannot manage performance requirements the same way they manage functional requirements. Even worse, with the proliferation of complex parallel target platforms, it becomes more difficult to design a system that reaches a given performance goal with just the minimum amount of resources, managed right. Today the only solution to this problem is to over-design systems: systems are equipped pragmatically with an overcapacity that likely avoids under-performance, but for this very reason are more expensive and consume more resources than necessary.

PaPP aims at making performance predictable in every development phase, from the modelling of the system, over its implementation, to its execution by allowing for early specification and analysis of performance of systems, its adaptation to different hardware platforms, including an adaptive runtime system.

To achieve our goals PaPP features a highly skilled European consortium consisting of a balanced mix of problem owners, domain experts, and technology providers led by the Swedish Institute of Computer Science (SICS). HIB leads the activities in WP6 related to project demonstrators.

Varies

VARiability In safety-critical Embedded Systems

VARIES is an industry driven research project in the ARTEMIS programme on the topic of variability in safety critical embedded systems. Embedded Systems (ES) are rarely entirely conceived from scratch. Companies developing ES constantly face decisions about whether to use and adapt existing products or product assets or whether to develop new assets. Determining the long term risk and benefits of such decisions is very challenging. VARIES addresses the following question: How can the benefits offered by introducing variability into ES outweigh the increased product complexity caused by variability. Its objectives are:

  • to enable companies to make informed decisions on variability use in safety critical ES;
  • to provide effective variability architectures and approaches for safety-critical ES; and
  • to offer consistent, integrated and continuous variability management over the entire product life cycle.

In addition, VARIES will create a Center of Innovation Excellence (CoIE) for managing variability in ES.

VARIES started in May 2012 for a duration of 3 years, and involves 23 partners from 7 countries. HI-Iberia leads the Spanish Consortium, composed by 3 partners, and is WP2 leader defining the system requirements as well as provider of one of the demonstration assets for the final technology.

ECOGEM

FP7

Cooperative Advanced Driver Assistance System for Green Cars

EcoGem is a collaborative programme funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme within the PPP European Green Cars Initiative. The European consortium is led by TEMSA and consists in 9 other partners as well as HI iberia.

EcoGem focuses on ICT-based solutions for sustainable mobility through the development of an Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) aimed at a Fully Electric Vehicle (FEV). From EcoGem's point of view, electric automobile success and acceptance will depend on consumption and, by extension, on range. EcoGem believes that it is necessary to develop suitable ICT solutions that can aid the driver in these aspects and at the same time ensure the autonomy and reliability of the electric automobile.

TOWAN

Towards Data Prioritization in Mobile Networks

Towan is a project funded by the 2010 Business Innovation Plan (PIE) of the Autonomous Community of Madrid. It is being executed entirely by HI iberia.

Towan meets the need to cover certain aspects outside the scope of the Prosimos project: investigating methods and techniques aimed at prioritising data in mobile telecommunications networks to favour emergency services in critical situations. This need was detected as a result of definition of Prosimos requirements. Another important objective of the project is analysis of possible business models that would enable its implementation.
