Software architecture for Predictable HEterogeneous REal-time systems

The SPHERE project aims at providing an integrated operating system framework to abstract the hardware complexity of cutting-edge multi-core platforms and simplify the management of heterogeneous computational resources.

The SPHERE framework addresses these challenges by providing methodologies and tools for:

  • analyzing the execution behavior of the applications tasks and predict their average and worst case response times;
  • enabling fast and predictable communication mechanisms between multiple computing nodes;
  • enforcing security features to guarantee data integrity and nodes confidentiality.

The feasibility of the SPHERE framework will be validated in a highly relevant industrial use case: a pioneering autonomous driving system for the automotive domain.

More details will soon be available on the project website.
