The German non-profit ogranization SafeTRANS bundles the expertise of industry and academics in the field of development processes and methods for safety-critical embedded systems with focus on the transportation domain (automotive, avionics, rail, maritime), and other safety critical applications. 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:
The megatrend of smart, self-learning applications faces enormous challenges for OEMs, suppliers and research institutes. Effective and efficient testing, implementation of functions, mastery of complexity, certification and approval are just a few areas that require solutions.
The SafeTRANS Roadmap "Highly automated systems: Safety, testing, and development processes" shows as a strategic document opportunities and research challenges for a model-centric approach, and learning from a field-based process for the certification of such systems.
