The SAFEPOWER project aims to enable the development of cross-domain mixed-criticality systems, such as those used in the railway, aerospace, automotive and energy sectors, with low power and safety requirements by a reference architecture orchestrating different local power-management techniques based on safe and securitized built-in low-power services.
SAFEPOWER builds a comprehensive suite of analysis, simulation and verification tools for low-power mixed-criticality systems, including hardware and software reference platforms assisting the implementation, observation and test of such applications. SAFEPOWER will demonstrate and support effective low-power execution and adequate certification cognizance of mixed-criticality power aware systems through EU industry representative use-cases and illustrative safety concepts assessed by an external certification authority. Additionally, SAFEPOWER will also maximize the impact of the project promoting a cross-domain public demonstrator, available for other different industrial domains.
SAFEPOWER will draw upon pre-existing results from the FP7-DREAMS project architecture, the FP7-MULTIPARTES and FP7-PROXIMA safety concept approach and the estimation and analysis of SoC power and temperature of the FP7-CONTREX project.
IK4-Ikerlan is coordinating the SAFEPOWER European Project. The center is also taking charge of some tasks, on the one hand, the ones required for compliance, which involves identifying the needs of the end users of the technology for mixed-criticality systems with low power requirements and on the other hand, the implementation of the platform. IK4-Ikerlan will develop for this a custom electronic card, which incorporates the hardware components of the SAFEPOWER reference architecture. This platform will be used in the three areas of use (railway, aeronautics and the public demonstrator).
IK4-Ikerlan will provide direct support to CAF's demonstrator and it will be the expert voice in the subjects related to functional safety standards.
