KIT researches multi-core processors for automotive and industrial applications

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 J├╝rgen 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.
