Start of the European embedded systems project CRYSTAL (Critical system engineering acceleration)
News from May 28, 2013
CRYSTAL aims at fostering Europe’s leading edge position in embedded systems engineering in particular regarding quality and cost effectiveness of safety-critical embedded systems and architecture platforms. Its overall goal is to enable sustainable paths to speed up the maturation, integration, and cross-sectoral reusability of technological and methodological bricks of the factories for safety-critical embedded systems engineering in the areas of transportation (aerospace, automotive and rail) and healthcare.
With its technology ModelBus®, the competence center MOTION (Modeling and Testing for System and Service Solutions) of Fraunhofer FOKUS offers a reference implementation of parts of the Interoperability Specification (IOS). Beside the cross-cutting technologies, Fraunhofer FOKUS also supports the application of these technologies in an industrial context where special emphasis is put on the automotive domain.
CRYSTAL consists of 71 partners from 10 European countries.
Project duration: May 2013 – May 2016
Project budget: Euro 82 million (consisting of European, national and industrial funding).
