AMPERE's first video was released

The first AMPERE video has been released and it delves into how the project will overcome the challenges of developing traditional cyber-physical systems. More specifically, it will describe how it will do so by bridging the gap of the challenge that developers face of leveraging low-energy, highly parallel, and heterogeneous computation in their model-based development process while fulfilling the non-functional constraints inherited from the cyber-physical interaction.

The newest functionalities in cars and trams allow them to move safely and operate more efficiently while having to process in real-time an ever-increasing number of events. The use of computing platforms with high-performance capabilities is necessary to cope with the performance requirements of such functionalities, while accurately fulfilling non-functional requirements such as real-time response, energy efficiency, safety & cyber-security, and resiliency.

Hence, developers face the challenge of leveraging low-energy, highly parallel, and heterogeneous computation in their model-based development process while fulfilling the non-functional constraints inherited from the cyber-physical interaction. There is therefore a strong need to bridge the gap between model-driven engineering and parallel programming models used to exploit high-performance capabilities and guarantee the fulfillment of non-functional requirements.

The AMPERE project will bridge this gap by developing a novel software architecture that will increase productivity in development, and will efficiently exploit parallel and heterogeneous processor architectures, fulfilling non-functional requirements as needed by advanced functionalities. In order to do so, AMPERE will automatically transform the model-based representations of advanced automotive and railway functionalities, into parallel programming models supported by the underlying processor architectures including high-performance features.
