Researchers at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Germany, along with partners from research and industry, have successfully demonstrated that multi-core technologies in principle could provide digital computation capacity for safety-critical applications.

The team proved the suitability of multi-core processors in demonstrations during the ARAMiS project. The participants have now launched the ARAMiS II project in an attempt to study and optimize development processes, tools, and platforms for the efficient use of industrially available multi-core architectures.

Multi-core processors have been applied successfully in many applications, but safety-critical applications in mobility and industry would require multi-core processors to meet additional complex requirements.

"The new ARAMiS II project is aimed at developing indispensable methodological prerequisites to enhance the safety, efficiency, and comfort of using multi-core technologies and to make them available on the industrial scale," says KIT professor Jurgen Becker, spokesperson for the board of KIT's Institute for Information Processing Technology. "The results of ARAMiS II will be incorporated in standardization activities in the areas covered and supplied to other industry partners."
