Fraunhofer is Europe’s largest application-oriented research organisation. The Fraunhofer-Institute for Experimental Software Engineering (FhG IESE) in Kaiserslautern, Germany, founded in January 1996, is led by Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Dieter Rombach and Prof. Dr.-ing. Peter Liggesmeyer. Research efforts are entirely adjusted to societal and people’s needs: health, security, communication, energy and the environment. As a result, the work performed by our researchers and developers has a significant impact on people’s lives. We are creative. We shape technology. We design products. We improve methods and techniques. We open up new perspectives. FhG IESE focuses on applied research, development and technology transfer in the areas of innovative software and system development approaches, quality and process engineering, continuous improvement as well as organisational learning. In order to prepare industrial software developers and users for current and future information technology challenges, FhG develops new techniques, methods, processes, and tools that base software development on sound engineering principles. FhG thus provides competence as well as the training on methods and tools necessary to mature industrial software and systems development practices and give companies a competitive market advantage.
Relevant Expertise for the project:
FhG IESE has developed advanced engineering methods and tools in the field of requirements, architecture, safety, security, product lines/adaptable systems, and modelbased development in many national and international public projects (e.g., CESAR, CRYSTAL, EMC2 , MBAT, SPES 2020, SPES XT, FAMILIES, PESOA, HATS) and in cooperation with industry partners as Bosch, Continental, Daimler, EADS, and Siemens. Furthermore FhG IESE has many years of experience with numerous industry projects in the area of functional safety and is a strategic partner of many companies for innovative
Role in the project:
FhG will help to assure that the MANTIS platform architecture and solutions will meet the essential quality demands from the very beginning of the development, with a special focus on dependability including safety, security and openness. With this FhG is developing solutions within the MANTIS platform architecture in • Overall system requirements and architecture (WP 1 and 2) • System management approaches for open adaptive embedded systems that guarantee safety and security at runtime (WP 2). • Decision support, e.g. modelling and reasoning of adaptations and their interdependencies (WP 4) • Commercial vehicle and off-road vehicle use cases (WP 7). The platform will be validated, especially within the use case of off-road vehicles together with German OEMs and suppliers, thereby focusing on non-functional properties of the resulting CPS.
