Parallel Workshop Session W2.6 – “ARTEMIS SRA”
Embedded Systems technology (ES) is a recognised crucial key enabling technology for the development of innovative products and service, consolidating Europe’s economical growth, jobs creation and competitiveness on international market.
ARTEMIS is a unique programme succeeding in few years to build self-sustaining eco-systems and set ES largest R&D projects for safety- critical, high reliability systems for multi-domain compatibility and interoperability.
Cyber-Physical Systems are entering a new era serving societal and economical challenges. ARTEMIS targets focus its R&D on exploiting the ubiquity of the CPS, the neural system linking physical world and sharing networks, optimising the Technology Time to Market/Technology Time on Market, mastering complexity, reducing cost and power consumption, and increasing performance.
Its Research Roadmap will deliver technologies needed for Application Contexts, as: Efficient and Safe Mobility (automotive, aeronautics, railway, space), Wellbeing and health (Care everywhere), Sustainable Production (process automation, manufacturing, power plants/ energy conversion), Smart Communities (smart-safe cities, energy efficient building). The road-maps derived from these applications needs covers:
A- Architectures Principles and models for Safe and secure CPS
B- System Design, modelling and virtual engineering for CPD
C- Autonomous adaptive and cooperative of CPS
D- Computing Platforms and Energy Management for CPS.
