Quobis takes part of the project EMC²: Embedded multi-core systems for mixed criticality applications in dynamic and changeable real-time environments in the frame of ARTEMIS program.

Embedded systems are the key innovation driver to improve mechatronic products with cheaper and even new functionalities. They support today’s information society as inter-system communication enabler. Consequently, boundaries of application domains are alleviated and ad-hoc connections and interoperability play an increasing role. A major industrial challenge arises from the need to face cost efficient integration of different applications with different levels of safety and security on a single computing platform in an open context. Multi-core and many-core computing platforms have to significantly improve system and application integration, efficiency and performance.

The objective of the EMC² project is to foster these changes through an innovative and sustainable service-oriented architecture approach for mixed criticality applications in dynamic and changeable real-time environments. EMC² is an attempt to bundle the power for innovation of 98 partners from embedded industry and research from 19 European countries. The EMC² embedded system approach will force the breakthrough and deployment of Multi-Core technology in almost all application domains where real-time and mixed-criticality are issues, and therefore strengthen the competitiveness of the European Embedded System industry. The project is organized in a structure with horizontal and vertical activities closely linked to each other:

  • Horizontal activities: So-called technological work packages (WP1-WP6) will develop dedicated technologies required for the development in implementation of embedded, mixed-criticality multi-core systems.
  • Vertical activities: So-called living labs (WP7-WP12) include several demonstrators for mixed-criticality embedded systems aiming at the same application domain. Each task in a living lab represents a use case. Technologies developed in WP1-WP6 will be applied and evaluated in the dedicated use cases of the living labs.

Quobis leads one of these vertical activities: the Internet of Things Living Lab. More information: http://www.artemis-emc2.eu/
