“Project P” and “Hi-MoCo” projects focus on safety critical model-based integration and code generation
February 01, 2012 // Julien Happich
AdaCore has announced its participation in “Project “P” and “Hi-MoCo” (High-Integrity Model Compiler), two open-source research efforts supported and partly funded by the French and Estonian national governments and the European EUREKA agency. The combined projects, which started in October 2011, aim to provide an open-source, tunable and qualifiable code generation framework for domain-specific modeling languages.
The key idea is to allow control engineers (using Simulink, Stateflow and Scicos/XCos), system engineers (using SysML/MARTE and AADL), and software engineers (using UML) to easily collaborate for system-level model integration, verification, and final optimized code generation targeting the Ada 2012, C/C++ and VHDL languages.
AdaCore, the technical coordinator of the projects, is working closely with the IB Krates team led by Tnu Nks and members from IRIT (Institut de Recherche en Informatique de Toulouse) led by Marc Pantel, the principal architects of the ITEA GeneAuto project and technology on which Project P and Hi-MoCo are based. AdaCore, Krates, and IRIT will be the principal contributors to the code generation technology at the heart of the toolset being developed. Together with Frdric Pothon of ACG Solutions and chair of the Tool Qualification subgroup of the DO-178C committee, the three companies will play a major role in the cross-domain qualification effort spanning the avionics, space, and automotive domains. AdaCores expertise in developing and supporting the certification/qualification of tunable, open-source commercial-of-the-shelf (COTS) components and tools that meet safety and reliability certification standards such as DO-178 (avionics) and ECSS-E-ST-40 (space) will be especially relevant.
The ultimate goal of these projects is to end the segregation between the control, system and software engineers, said Franco Gasperoni, Managing Director of AdaCore. A major bottleneck in the model-driven development of software for avionics, space, and automotive systems is the integration of heterogeneous models and the lack of comprehensive verification and code generation technologies. Project P and Hi-MoCo aim to solve this problem by developing an open-source, tunable and qualifiable code generation framework for heterogeneous models, while making cross-domain qualification material available. The current state-of-the-art is to perform integration on generated sources. We are proposing to do this at the model level to verify integration issues well before models are mature enough for code generation, concluded Matteo Bordin, project manager of the Project P and Hi-MoCo efforts at AdaCore.
Project P is a three-year research project financially supported within the French FUI 2011 funding framework. Headed by Continental Automotive France, it involves the collaboration of 19 partners including major industrial users from the avionics, automotive and space domains (Airbus, Astrium, Continental Automotive, Rockwell Collins, Safran, Thales Alenia Space and Thales Avionics), technology providers (AdaCore, Altair, STInformatique , Scilab Enterprise), service companies (ACG Solutions, Aboard Engineering, Atos Origins) and research centres (ENPC, IRIT-INPT/CNRS, INRIA, ONERA, Lab-STICC/Universit de Bretagne Sud).
