ACDC +Vehicular communication using wireless technology is a cornerstone in the design of many important cooperative safety or convenience services offered in today’s vehicles, as e.g. lane change assistance or blind spot warnings. A growing application is vehicle platooning, where a caravan of vehicles on the highway can automatically follow a leading vehicle (controlled by a human driver). The next step in the evolution of this application area is fully auto­nomous driving, which is considered as a strategically important development direction by numerous leading car and truck manufacturers. Although the introduction of fully autonomous vehicles into ordinary city environ­ments still lies far ahead, the automatic operation of vehicles in restricted areas, as e.g. in harbours, storage facilities, or mines, is feasible to some extend already today. However, cooperation between vehicles using wireless communica­tion can enhance the possibilities to a great extent. Autonomous cooperative driving enabled by intervehicle communication has highly demanding operating condi­tions and generates delay-sensitive data traffic with requirements on high reliability regarding correct data delivery. Achieving this high data reliability within a given time frame is particularly difficult in vehicular networks due to the highly dynamic radio environment encountered by the communicating cars or trucks.
AUTO-CAAS +AUTO-CAAS is a project on model-based testing and diagnosis of automotive software, to be carried out in collaboration with QuviQ and ArcCore companies and to be funded by the Swedish Knowledge Foundation. The project will run for 3 years from February 2015 to February 2018.


Centre for Health Technology Halland - HCH +The Centre for Health Technology in Halland is a meeting place for businesses, consumers, the municipalities of Halland County, the County Council of Halland and Halmstad University and provides a joint platform for the pursuit of development in the area of health technology. Through co-operative projects and work in innovative environments leading to new products and services, the project seeks to contribute to increasing the pace of innovation and to sharpening the competitive edge of the companies involved.


DEWI +The EU project "DEWI-Dependable Embedded Wireless Infrastructure" with 58 partners from 11 countries deals with the development of wireless sensor networks and applications. DEWI deals with more than 20 industry driven application cases for citizens and professional users. The worked out results shall in conclusion be introduced to the public in all of Europe by using clear practical demonstrations in the areas of aeronautics, automobile, railroad and building automation. Furthermore DEWI provides essential contributions to interoperability, standardization and certification of wireless sensor networks and wireless communication.


ESCHER +The ESCHER project will address the design and implementation of Embedded Streaming Computations on Heterogeneous Energy-efficient aRchitectures. The design and implementation of such systems needs a coordinated effort to co-develop both the hardware architectures and the application development environment. With regard to hardware, the focus will be on how parallel heterogeneous architectures should be organized, designed, and evaluated, as well as how they should interface with the application development tools and frameworks. The software aspect will focus on how to develop real-time streaming applications at a high level of abstraction, develop a single application source that can target a multitude of heterogeneous architectures, utilize domain knowledge to better target a diverse set of architectures, and support an efficient design process taking into account resource efficiency and real-time aspects.


HiPEC +Parallelism is the main way to provide significant performance improvement of embedded systems while keeping energy consumption low. Streaming applications are good candidates for parallelization since they are regular and exhibit data parallelism. Traditionally, ASICs have been designed to implement specific functionality with high performance and low power constraints. Recently, coarse-grained reconfigurable array architectures have been proposed as flexible but still high performance alternatives. It is therefore expected that the DSP computing system, increasingly parallel and reconfigurable, will be one of the dominating parts in OEM equipments in 2020 because it maximally exposes opportunities of parallelization. In this project, we address reconfigurable array processor architectures as well as software tools for their programming. A massively parallel execution platform with powerful computing nodes and hierarchical interconnection structure suitable for streaming applications will be developed and studied. The distinct features of our software development approach are the use of the CAL language for programming of these architectures as well as the development and use of tools for timing and energy analysis at early design stages. Combining both hardware and software experts in the same project provides a strong basis for covering the whole spectrum of this new technology.


SCOTT +Creating trust in wireless solutions and increasing their societal acceptance are major challenges to achieve the full potential of the Internet of Things. Therefore, SCOTT – Secure COnnected Trustable Things, a European effort with 57 partners from 12 countries (EU and Brazil), will provide comprehensive cost-efficient solutions of wireless, end-to-end secure, trustworthy connectivity and interoperability to bridge the last gap to market introduction. SCOTT will not just deal with 'things that are connected', but with 'trustable things that communicate securely ', i.e., things connected by secure and dependable wireless technology. SCOTT uses a standardized multi-domain reference architecture, created in a predecessor Artemis project (DEWI), which fosters reusability, scalability, and interoperability of SCOTT solutions. SCOTT also utilizes a clearly use-case driven approach with 15 use cases to build up digital ecosystems to achieve a broader market penetration for ‘trustable things that communicate securely’. Tangible results from all use cases will ultimately be shown to the public in the form of more than 20 demonstrators. SCOTT will open up new market opportunities for the European industry, reduce time to market, and decrease costs for trustable wireless solutions. SCOTT will also develop methods and tools capable of meeting use-case requirements on reliability, robustness, security, and functional safety even in harsh environments.
STAMP +Stream programming using a methodology based on dataflow, and specifically the CAL actor language, is emerging as one way of simultaneously addressing the need for a concurrent programming model for today's increasingly parallel platforms as well as that of adequately representing the algorithms in application areas characterized by the processing of data streams. One current limitation of the dataflow programming model is that it presents designers with an unattractive trade-off between performance and expressiveness, as current compilation techniques for dataflow programs are predicated on the ability to schedule the activations of computational kernels statically, i.e. at compile time, which is only possible for a limited class of very regular dataflow programs (such as cyclo-static dataflow). In order to facilitate adoption, the project intends to dramatically change the trade-off between expressiveness and performance, by developing compilation techniques and tools for a very broad class of dataflow programs exhibiting data-dependent and timing-dependent behaviors. The goal is to match the performance of state-of-the-art synthesis for statically schedulable dataflow programs, and to have efficiency degrade gracefully with the amount of data-dependent behavior and dynamic network structures used by the programmer, tracking the performance of comparable handwritten code. The goal is also to develop a complete tool chain targeting representative examples of the increasing flow of commercially available manycore platforms.
Science Without Borders +Science without Borders is a large scale nationwide scholarship programme primarily funded by the Brazilian federal government.

Towards Next Generation Embedded Systems: Utilizing Parallelism and Reconfigurability +This project envisions that the diversity of applications and contrasting performance constraints in next-generation embedded systems will necessitate the use of emerging technologies such as reconfigurable architectures and many-core processors. The project aims to develop, experiment and evaluate advanced embedded computing platforms for diverse application needs such as real-time response, low energy consumption and low cost constraints. Our focus is to address these needs through simplified programming and flexible architectures. This approach will provide the industry with tools and methodologies for meeting user-defined performance constraints with a quick time-to-market.
