The German cluster SafeTRANS bundles the expertise of industry and academics in the field of development processes and methods for safety-critical embedded systems in the transportation domain (automotive, avionics, rail, maritime). SafeTRANS is THE competence cluster to support basic research for embedded systems cross domains at a national and European level. We foster the following activities:
• Strategic R&D alignment
• Project incubation
• Interoperability Standards for Engineering Environments
Priorities presented at the embedded world:
Technological progress especially in the area of embedded systems enable increasingly higher degrees of autonomy in transportation systems. The development process of such systems must allow efficient testing, transparency, and certifiability. SafeTRANS supports relevant players in the transportation domain in research and development for embedded systems in highly automated systems.
One specific aim is to ensure interoperability between software tools for the development and production of such systems. These software tools are based on an aligned interoperability specification (IOS). The IOS minimizes breaks in the transitions between development steps and tools, and thus reduces development costs and error rates.
