Handling Mixed Criticality on Modern Multi-core Systems: the HERCULES Project Vortragssprache Englisch

Recently, the industry has shown a growing interest for executing activities with different levels of criticality on the same multi-core SoC. These could consist, for example, of non-critical activities (e.g., monitoring, logging, human-machine intefaces) together with safety-critical real-time tasks (e.g. engine control). The rationale behind this interest is the continuous need for reducing the time-to-market as well as the design and hardware costs. In this context, the talk will illustrate the results achieved by the 3-year HERCULES project (, funded by the European Commission under the H2020 programme. The project aims at building a high-performance real-time architecture using modern low-power ARM platforms. In particular, the project has built a system consisting on the Linux OS and an automotive RTOS on top of an open-source hypervisor. Besides presenting the overall software architecture, the talk will highlight the issues related to the interference on shared hardware resources, illustrating some techniques specifically designed for mitigating or removing such issue, also providing experimental results about the effectiveness of the proposed approaches.
