ACTORS - Adaptivity and ConTrol Of Resources in embedded Systems (EU IST FP7)

EU IST Strep coordinated by Ericsson Mobile Platforms, 2008 - 2011


Category:EU-Projects
Status:Active
Coordinator:Ericsson Mobile Platforms
Time Period:2008 - 2011
Persons:Gerhard Fohler, Raphael Guerra, Stefan Schorr
Institutes:Scuola Superiore Sant 'Anna, Evidence, EPFL, AKAtech SA, Ericsson AB, Lunds Tekniska Högskola

Description:

ACTORS addresses the challenging problem of efficient design of embedded systems for complex and demanding high-performance applications. The project approach is to raise the abstraction level of the specifications and computing models, to include resource-constrained design exploration stages and real-time resource adaptation by developing the appropriate models and
tools supporting the design from the specification down to the embedded implementation. Three main innovative technologies will
be employed:

  • high level dataflow specification and programming models for design space exploration,
  • virtualization and
  • feedback-based resource scheduling.

The targeted execution platforms are Linux- based multiprocessor/multicore systems and FPGAs. Three design cases
will be developed to validate and demonstrate the new approach:

  • multimedia processing on cellular phone terminals
  • embedded control and
  • high-performance video systems.
