Making the configuration and the deployment optimal
The main goal of the TIME4PS project was to provide a complete set of tools that covers all the phases of the life cycle of a product, from the system design to the final configuration file of the partitioned system:
- Connect the customers’ modelling tool with Time4Sys
- Give Time4Sys the ability to define partitioned systems
- Connect Time4Sys and Xamber so the timing performance verification is automatically done in Xamber
- Demonstrate the capabilities of the partitioned framework developed by means of an application experiment in the space domain.
Product development and FED4SAE support
Partnering with Thales Research and Technology, Time4PS consists of an architecture where three tools are connected to define the complete system: a modelling design tool (XPM) that is used to model the system and generate the deployment and the configuration code of the applications, Time4sys to define temporal information, and a configuration tool to obtain the planning and schedule for XtratuM according to the application real-time constraints (Xamber).
FED4SAE support and opportunity
This project contributed to scientific progress of software engineering for mixed criticality embedded real-time systems and it highlighted the increase in quality and effort savings obtained by using an integrated software development lifecycle supported by the appropriate tools.
Thanks to this solution, fentISS customers will be able to use more sophisticated tools for modelling, analysis, and integration of their system.
