ARTEMIS CROSS-Domain Architecture

ACROSS

ARTEMIS CROSS-Domain Architecture

Link to CORDIS:
Background & policy context: 

ACROSS was a research project that aimed to develop and implement an ARTEMIS cross-domain reference architecture for embedded systems based on the architecture blueprint developed in the European FP7 project GENESYS.

Objectives: 

The project aimed to develop and implement an ARTEMIS cross-domain reference architecture for embedded systems based on the architecture blueprint developed in the European FP7 project GENESYS.

The ACROSS project aimed at achieving the following objectives:

  • An ACROSS-MPSoC that implements generic core services (e.g., deterministic communication, global time, diagnosis, fault and error containment) in an FPGA-based hardware for multiprocessor systems-on-a-chip (MPSoC).
  • Design and implementation of generic optional services to be used in multiple application domains.
  • A general model-based design methodology, supported by appropriate adaptable tools, for the implementation and verification of ACROSS-based applications taking into account existing domain-specific models/tools.
  • Design and implementation of domain-specific optional services for the realisation of embedded applications in the following domains: automotive, aerospace and industrial design and implementation of selected sample applications from the cited domains, which will show the benefits of using the ACROSS approach.
Methodology: 

The ACROSS project is partitioned into the following six coordinated work packages:

  • WP1: ACROSS MPSoC
  • WP2: Middleware and System Components
  • WP3: Development Methodology
  • WP4: Automotive
  • WP5: Aerospace
  • WP6: Industrial Control

These six work packages, covering technical and demonstration aspects, are complemented by a Dissemination & Exploitation work package (WP7) and a Project Management work package (WP8) dedicated to marketing and managerial aspects. Each work package (WP) has precise sub-objectives which are well-aligned with the ACROSS overall objectives. The starting points for ACROSS are taken from the results of the GENESYS project, which provides for the first-level specification for the ACROSS work packages WP1 and WP2.

Key Results: 
  • Definition / integration of domain-specific and generic application meta-models, covering both functional and non-functional properties.
  • Definition of platform meta-models providing an abstraction of the core and optional services defined in the ACROSS architecture (e.g., ACROSS MPSoC, operating system...).
  • Definition of platform-specific meta-models for the configuration of the ACROSS platform.
  • Algorithms, models and tools for analysis and verification (e.g., scheduler for the time-triggered network-on-chip, system-level design-space exploration, reliability analysis, ESL models, deadlock analysis, simulation.)
  • Automatic model-to-model transformations (e.g., from domain-specific to generic application models, synthesis of platform-specific (configuration) models)
  • Source code and platform configuration files generators
