The OpenEmbedd Project: A RNTL Project
Partners:Airbus, Anyware Technologies, CEA, CS SI, France Telecom, INRIA (AOSTE, DaRT, ESPRESSO), LAAS (CNRS), Thales Aerospace, Thales R&D, Verimag.
The OpenEmbedd project (http://www.openembedd.org )aims is to develop an engineering model driven open-source platform for real time and embedded systems. It deals with (1) UML standard for Real Time and Embedded systems, (2) innovating technology for interoperability, (3) mastering methodology chain, (4) real time models for simulation. The tools are evaluating in practical domains, e.g. the aeronautic sector, automobile sector, and telecom sector. The project will succeed in providing a technological core for Model Driven Engineering, by producing a set of tools dealing with different concerns about real time and embedded systems, and by validating an approach in the representative domains, in both applicative and methodological concerns. Software developed will be open-source. Future platform aims to federate academic partners effort and will guarantee a wide diffusion of the software.
Our OpenEmbedd partners are Airbus, Anyware Technologies, CEA, CS SI, France Telecom, INRIA, LAAS (CNRS), Thales Aerospace, Thales R&D, Verimag. The project has link with three competitiveness poles: Minalogic, System@tic, Aerospace Valley.
The activity of the DaRT Project in the OpenEmbedd RNTL project is to normalize models about real time and embedded systems domains, and more precisely the MARTE profile. The objectives are to participate to elaboration of a graphical editor generated from OpenEmbedd tools, and to work on plugins dedicated to simulation and checking. During the OpenEmbedd meetings that have been held in April and November in Grenoble and Toulouse respectively, DaRT presented the compilation chain from UML towards VHDL and the collapse of the hierarchical and repetitive Gaspard2 architecture model.
