Strategic R&D alignment (roadmaping)

To enable long-term efficient and innovative research, industrial (OEMs Zuliferer, SMEs) and academic partners (research institutes and universities) are working togehter across application domains. By acting together and with a strategy harmonised on a national and European level, the future social and economic challenges can be mastered with embdded technologies. SafeTRANS is THE German competence cluster to provide the platform for cooeration in the domain of embedded systems.

  • Societal and Technological Research Challenges for Highly Automated Road Transportation Systems in Germany and the US

    Initialized by the DFG and NSF funded PIRE project “SD-SSCPS – Science of Design of Societal Scale Cyber-Physical Systems”, a two-day expert workshop titled “Societal and Technological Research Challenges for Highly Automated Road Transportation Systems in Germany and the US: Diversity and Synergy Potentials” brought together experts from research organizations and public authorities from the US and Germany.

    The workshop was hosted by: German Aerospace Center
    Place: Washington, D.C.
    Date: 30.-31.10.2018

    Its main objective was to establish a mutual understanding about current approaches and research activities for building, validating, and testing Highly Automated Driving Systems on both sides of the Atlantic. This report summarizes the workshop’s content and its key findings.

  • Position paper and Roadmap "Highly Automated Systems: Test, Safety, and Development Processes - Research Challenges and Recommendations of Actions"

    The roadmap and position paper outline research and regulatory topics for a cost-effective and safe use of highly automated systems, with a focus on the entire development process, including architecture and security aspects as well as verification and validation (V&V).

  • ARTEMIS Strategic Research Agenda 2016

    The ARTEMIS Industry Association launched its Strategic Research Agenda 2016 in April. ARTEMIS-IA aims to consolidate the pathway for the digital revolution, enabling a more agile and shorter development cycle of Embedded Intelligent Systems. In the coming years the Industry Association will focus on providing strong technological capability over the whole value chain, thus removing barriers between application contexts to yield multi-domain, reusable components and Embedded Intelligent systems, and extend the use of digital platforms to build the stronger eco-systems that are needed to accelerate innovation and create new business models.

  • Eingebettete Systeme in der Automobilindustrie

    The Automotive Roadmap Embedded Systems was published on 22nd September on the occasion of the IAA 2015.

  • acatech agendaCPS

    Cyber-physical systems will pose new challenges to science and research. Embedded hardware and software systems are decisive driving forces for innovation in the export and growth markets of German industry. They crucially expand the functionality and, as a result, the practical value and competitiveness of vehicles, aircraft, medical equipment, production plants and household appliances. The objective should be to master technology and its economic use and to focus on the social acceptance of cyber-physical systems.
