Collaborations with other projects
INTO-CPS project created an integrated “tool chain” for comprehensive Model-Based Design (MBD) of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPSs). The tool chain supports the multidisciplinary, collaborative modelling of CPSs from requirements, through design, down to realisation in hardware and software. This enables traceability at all stages of the development. The IP from this project has been transferred to the INTO-CPS Association after the completion of the project.
Different approaches on traceability mechanisms were discussed to share knowledge.

MINEStrA aims at providing a system integration approach supporting early behavioural analysis and simulation based on executable models. Executable models will be automatically derived from the different views of the system design in order to (i) provide a common denominator for behavioural semantics of the different points of view of the system, and (ii) allow the simulation and analysis of the integrated system behaviour as a whole. This early validation and verification activity permits to identify infeasible configurations and anticipate possible pitfalls in the final system, thus allowing to lower development time and costs. Moreover, back-propagation of analysis results is made easier thanks to the level of abstraction at which the validation is performed.

AMASS creates and consolidates the de-facto European-wide open tool platform, ecosystem, and self-sustainable community for assurance and certification of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) in the largest industrial vertical markets including automotive, railway, aerospace, space, energy. The ultimate goal of AMASS is to lower certification costs for CPS in face of rapidly changing features and market needs. This is achieved by establishing a novel holistic and reuse-oriented approach for architecture-driven assurance (fully compatible with standards such as AUTOSAR and IMA), multi-concern assurance (for co-analysis and co-assurance of e.g. security and safety aspects), and for seamless interoperability between assurance and engineering activities along with third-party activities (e.g. external assessments and supplier assurance).

SafeCOP targets safety-related Cooperating Cyber-Physical Systems (CO-CPS) characterised by use of wireless communication, multiple stakeholders, dynamic system definitions (openness), and unpredictable operating environments. It provides an approach to the safety assurance of CO-CPS, enabling their certification and development. The project defines a runtime manager architecture for runtime detection of abnormal behaviour, triggering if needed a safe degraded mode. SafeCOP also developed methods and tools used to produce safety assurance evidence needed to certify co-operative functions and extended current wireless technologies to ensure safe and secure cooperation. SafeCOP also contributed to new standards and regulations, by providing certification authorities and standardization committees with the scientifically validated solutions needed to craft effective standards extended to also address cooperation and system-of-systems issues. SafeCOP brings clear benefits in terms of cross-domain certification practice and implementations of cooperating systems in all addressed areas: healthcare, maritime, vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure.

The Cross-layer modEl-based fRamework for multi-oBjective dEsign of Reconfigurable systems in unceRtain hybRid envirOnments (CERBERO) project aims at developing a design environment for CPS based of two pillars: a cross-layer model based approach to describe, optimize, and analyze the system and all its different views concurrently; an advanced adaptivity support based on a multi-layer autonomous engine. To overcome the limit of current tools, CERBERO provides: libraries of generic Key Performance Indicators for reconfigurable CPSs in hybrid/uncertain environments; novel formal and simulation-based methods; a continuous design environment guaranteeing early-stage analysis and optimization of functional and non-functional requirements, including energy, reliability and security.

ENABLE-S3 is industry-driven and aspires to substitute today’s cost-intensive verification & validation efforts by more advanced and efficient methods to pave the way for the commercialization of highly automated cyber physical systems (ACPS). Pure simulation cannot cover physics in detail due to its limitations in modelling and computation. Real-world tests are too expensive, too time consuming and potentially dangerous. Thus, ENABLE-S3 aims at developing an innovative solution capable of combining both worlds in an optimized manner.
