Safety-critical applications in automotive, aviation and industry 4.0 will require a significant increase in digital computing performance. This can be provided via Multicore technologies. The ARAMiS II project, developed at the KIT, aims to increase safety, efficiency and comfort by using multicore technologies in vehicles, aircraft and production facilities.
The demand for digital computing performance is increasing
enormously, among other things by highly automated vehicles and
real-time networked machines, but also by the increasing integration and
interaction with other products and services. The use of Multicore
technologies significantly increases the computing power of embedded
systems in vehicles, aircraft or industrial plants. Multicore processors
have multiple processor cores that must work in parallel. This can
increase the computing power enormously, but the development is more
complex for several processor cores - for example, when it comes to
timing or critical point critical requirements. 7101j52zqe22
Multicore processors are now used successfully in many applications,
such as PCs, tablets and smartphones. However, safety-critical
applications in mobility and industry require additional complex
requirements, which is why multi-core systems have hardly become
established in industrial embedded applications or in the automotive
industry. The requirements for strict safety certifications have so far
hardly been met by these building blocks .
"In the new ARAMiS II project, we are creating the indispensable
methodological prerequisites to increase safety, efficiency and comfort
in the use of multicore technologies and make them industrially
available. The results of ARAMiS II are supplemented by standardization
activities of the domains concerned and are thus made available to other
industry partners. "Says Professor Jürgen Becker, spokesman of the
institute management of the Institute for Information Technology (ITIV)
of the KIT and together with Falco Bapp of the ITIV coordinator of
ARAMiS II. 7201k2zge
In its predecessor, the ARAMiS project, KIT has successfully
demonstrated with numerous partners from research and industry that
multicore technologies can be used and integrated in safety-critical
applications. Based on this, ARAMiS II is to develop, develop and
optimize the efficient development processes, especially the systematic
tool chain and the industrial platforms with the necessary methods, for
the reliable use of multicore architectures. Demonstrators in the
domains of automotive engineering, aerospace and industrial automation
should demonstrate the applicability of the developed concepts and
methods across all domains.
In a kick-off meeting on 1 and 2 December 2016, all partners
identified the next activities in the six subprojects: applications and
requirements, structured multicore development, multicore methods and
tools, multicore platforms, and architectural patterns , Implementation
and evaluation, results assurance and utilization.
The consortium of ARAMiS II consists of 33 partners. In addition to
renowned research facilities, leading manufacturers from the automotive
and aerospace industries as well as the industrial sector as well as
various suppliers, software and tool manufacturers are participating.
Continental, for example, is an industry spokesman in ARAMiS II, Audi,
Bosch, Airbus and Siemens.
Like its predecessor, ARAMiS II has been designed for three years;
The project volume totals more than 26 million euros. ARAMiS II is
funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) with
around 15 million euros.
