DEvelopment platform for Safe and Efficient dRiVE

DESERVE aims at designing and developing a Tool Platform for embedded Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) to exploit the benefits of cross-domain software reuse, standardised interfaces, and easy and safety-compliant integration of heterogeneous modules to cope with the expected increase of functions complexity and the impellent need of cost reduction.

The DESERVE Platform will provide the environment for ADAS design, development and pre-validation and even pre-certification of software and hardware modules to be integrated in ADAS applications. Safety critical requirements will be considered in the design and systems development making integrated, trusted, interoperable tools and tool-chains available.

DESERVE has been co-funded by the European Commission under the Artemis Joint programme and national funding agencies. The German consortium is funded by BMBF and is formed by the partners: ika (RWTH Aachen University), IMS (Leibniz Universitaet Hannover), Robert Bosch GmbH, dSPACE GmbH and Daimler AG.

The international project consortium is formed by the partners: VTT – Technical Research Centre of Finland, Centro Ricerche Fiat S.C.p.A., Italy, Continental Automotive France SAS, France, Ficosa S.A., Spain, AVL List GmbH, Austria, Robert Bosch GmbH, Germany, NXP Semiconductors, The Netherlands, Infineon Technologies AG, Germany, Daimler AG, Germany, Volvo Group Trucks Technology, Sweden, ICOOR – Interuniversity Consortium for Optimization and Operations Research, Italy, RE:Lab s.r.l., Italy, VisLab, University of Parma, Italy, IRSEEM – Embedded Electronic Systems Research Institute, France, dSPACE GmbH, Germany, Inria, France, ASL Vision, UK, Institut für Kraftfahrzeuge (ika), RWTH Aachen University, Germany, CTAG (Centro Tecnológico de Automoción de Galicia), Spain, ARMINES, France, TTS, Finland, INTEMPORA S.A., France, Technolution B.V., The Netherlands, Institute of Microelectronic Systems, Germany.
