CHESS Project

Executive Summary
The CHESS project seeks to improve Model Driven Engineering practices and technologies to better address safety, reliability, performance, robustness and other extra-functional concerns while guaranteeing correctness of component development and composition for embedded systems. System development costs will be reduced through extensive use of provable automation and model transformation engines specifically for high-integrity applications in the Railway, Space and Telecommunications domains, and through the identification of feasible solutions to complex system challenges earlier in the development process.

R & D Innovation
CHESS project aims to capture extra-functional concerns and extend Model Driven Engineering industrial practices and technology approaches to specifically address the architectural structure, the interactions and the behaviour of system components while guaranteeing their correctness and the level of service at run time. New modelling languages capable of handling extra-functional properties for real-time embedded systems will be developed and validated by industrial organisations from the Railways, Space and Telecommunications domain.

New development tools providing more efficient evaluation of extra-functional properties of embedded systems components will support the verification of extra-functional properties of components at the abstract model level with extra-functional requirements mapped onto the architectural model, attached to components, and preserved at run time.

CHESS addresses the challenges of property preserving component assembly in real-time and dependable embedded systems, and supports the description, verification, and preservation of extra-functional properties of software components and will provide fundamental improvements in the software quality of EU’s high-integrity real-time embedded systems.

About ARTEMIS Embedded Computing Systems Initiative
Computing technology is facing many threats and challenges from fragmentation, globalisation and fierce competition. The European Union recognises the strategic importance of Embedded Computing Systems and has launched the Artemis Joint Technology Initiative (JTI). The ARTEMIS JTI is implemented as a Joint Undertaking (JU) which is a public-private partnership between:
  • The European Commission
  • Member States
  • ARTEMISIA, a non-profit Industrial Association

ARTEMISIA is the ARTEMIS Industrial Association which represents the research commmunity including Industry (large, small and medium sized companies), universities and research institutes. The ARTEMIS JU is an organisation based in Brussels.

ARTEMIS aims to tackle the research and structural challenges faced by the industrial sector. The objective is to define and implement a Research Agenda for Embedded Computing System through a 10-year €2.5 billion research programme. ARTEMIS aims to help European industry consolidate and reinforce its world leadership in embedded computing technologies. The economic impact in terms of jobs and growth is expected to exceed €100 billion over ten years.
