The EuroCPS consortium has just released the success story related to the development by HIPPEROS of a high-performance multicore mixed-criticality platform for aerospace, robotics and automotive systems. HIPPEROS ported his RTOS on a Thales platform using a Freescale PowerPC multicore board, which Thales uses for safety critical avionics applications, performance benchmarks and isolation characteristics, and implemented a mixed-criticality scheduler with almost perfect performance scaling.
HIPPEROS presented results at the 24th International Conference on Real-Time Networks and Systems (RTNS) in 2016.
We published a paper named “Quantifying Energy Consumption for Practical Fork-Join Parallelism on an Embedded Real-Time Operating System”.
We showed that by using a power-aware parallel programming frameworks for the design of real-time embedded applications, the HIPPEROS RTOS allows system energy savings up to 30% compared to traditional, sequential approaches.
The resulting frameworks are part of the ARIA core.
Nowadays, embedded systems and more generally cyber-physical systems (CPS) are present everywhere in our daily lives. Computers embedded in planes and trains, wearable computing objects and medical devices are only a few examples of such technology-intensive devices in our modern society.
