Vehicles represents a class of embedded real-time systems where the requirements on safety, reliability, resource usage, and cost leaven all through development. The vehicular domain wants to practice Component based software development, which is a promising approach for efficient software development, enabling well defined software architectures as well as reuse. However, commercial component technologies are not used for those systems, they are simply to resource demanding, to complex and to unpredictable. The goal with the project is to define a component technology for resource constrained safety-critical embedded systems. The approach is to use a mature run-time platform such as a commercial real-time operating system, and enable component based design through powerful compile time techniques.
