- SPES 2020 - Software Platform Embedded Systems. Das
The network project “Software Platform Embedded Systems 2020” – SPES 2020 for short – was
launched by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) as a strategic funding
project in the area of embedded systems.
The aim of the research project SPES 2020 is to develop a more integrative, domain comprehensive, and
efficient methodology for developing embedded systems which contributes to handle embedded
systems of various application domains. The application domains aviation, automation and
production engineering, medical technology, automotive and energy technology are of special
26 partners from industry and research are engaged in this project.
- DENTUM I, II, III. In Cooperation with DENSO COOPERATION a methodology for the model-based
development of automotive systems is developped. This methodology was evaluated by means of several
case studies, e.g. an Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) system with Pre-Crash Safety (PCS) functionality.
- FLASCO I, II. In Cooperation with Siemens concepts for the consistent specification
of automation software is developped and evaluated by modelling a bottling plant.
Parts of the results of this project have been published as an application for a patent.
Goal of the project InServe is the methodological foundation of service-based development of reactive systems.
NOW stands for: Nutzung des Open-Source-Konzeptes in Wirtschaft und Industrie. Open source projects are characterized by the fact that some few developers design the system's architecture and many developers apply this architecture. Open source has some interesting examples of long term architecture evolution.
VISEK is the distributed German competence center for Software Engineering. VISEK's mission is to improve industrial software development practices. The VISEK consortium delivers Software Engineering expertise and provides a community for the exchange of experiences between researchers and practitioners in the field Software Engineering. As such VISEK is funded by the German ministry for research and education.
