DREAMS - Distributed REal-time Architecture for Mixed Criticality Systems (EU IST FP7)

Coordinator:University of Siegen
Time Period:2013 - 2017
Persons:Gerhard Fohler, Ankit Agrawal, Gautam Gala, Simara Perez
Institutes:Universität Siegen, IKERLAN S. COOP, Thales, Office national d'études et de recherches aérospatiales, RealTime-AT-Work, TTTech Computertechnik AG, Fortiss GmbH, Stiftelsen SINTEF, Alstom Renovables España, STMicroelectronics, Virtual Open Systems, Technological Educational Institute of Crete, Universidad Politécnica de Valencia, Fent Innovative Software Solutions, TÜV Rheinland Industrie Service GmbH



The objective of DREAMS is to develop a cross-domain architecture and design tools for networked complex systems where application subsystems of different criticality, executing on networked multi-core chips, are supported. DREAMS will deliver architectural concepts, meta-models, virtualization technologies, model-driven development methods, tools, adaptation strategies and validation, verification and certification methods for the seamless integration of mixed-criticality to establish security, safety, real-time performance as well as data, energy and system integrity.

The ambitious goals of the project are supported by 16 project partners distributed across six European countries. The project partners include major European companies encompassing large enterprises (Alstom, STMicroelectronics, Thales, TÜV Rheinland) and SMEs (FENTISS, RealTime-at-Work, TTTech, Virtual Open Systems,). Furthermore leading universities and research institutes (FORTISS, IKERLAN, ONERA, Polytechnic University of Valencia, SINTEF, Technological Educational Institute of Crete, Technical University of Kaiserslautern and University of Siegen) contribute to DREAMS.

The four-years DREAMS project is coordinated by University of Siegen and is one of three projects funded by the European Commission in the area of mixed-criticality systems from the FP7 ICT call 10. The EC financial contribution amounts to 11 million euros.
